Engaged Athletics Scout Day: Data Dive


By: Eliott Wilk
Midwest Operations Director

On Saturday, February 17th, the PBR Kansas staff traveled to the Engaged Athletcs Indoor Facility in Lecompton, KS, to host the annual Engaged Athletics Scout Day. This event, which is in its second year, was open to all Engaged Athletcs 2024-to-2027 prospects with 40+ names in attendance.

All of our events offer players the opportunity to update their recruiting resume and showcase their talents in front of our staff. We also use these events as identifiers for future invite-only events, like the Preseason All-State, our summer Top Prospect Games, and the prestigious Prep Baseball Future Games that takes place at the tail end of the summer. To see what our events offer, click HERE.

Shortly after the event, we published our typical post-event 'Quick Hits' piece, where we wrote up several of the day's top standouts. You can find those scout notes by clicking HERE. Yesterday we published the day's stat leaders within our 'Stat Story', and you can find that story HERE.

We'll wrap up our coverage from this event today within this 'Data Dive'. Continue reading below to see which players in attendance showed well from a batted ball, pitch metric, and swing analytics perspective.
