Baton Rouge Preseason ID: Stats Story


Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Zachary, LA - The Baton Rouge Preseason ID was held this past Saturday January 20, 2024, at the Zachary Youth Park.  All players in attendance went through an extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast, the 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, and more.  Pitchers finished off the event by throwing a bullpen, where they were able to receive their numbers and metrics off of Trackman, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement and much more.

We kick off off our post-event coverage with a look at some of the statistical leaders in different categories.  Please continue to check back over the coming days, as we'll release additional post-event coverage of the 2024 Baton Rouge Preseason ID.
