2023 Louisiana Rewind: Max Fastball Velocity


Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

As we begin to wrap up 2023 and gear up for the new year, our Louisiana staff has decided to compile all of the numbers and data from our event schedule this year, to compile a series of leaderboards.  All of the data for the following leaderboards were captured by our partners, Trackman Baseball, and is based on the information gathered from PBR Louisiana events such as Preseason ID's, Rising Stars, Summer Open events, and our invite-only events, such as the Top Prospect Games and the State Games.
