Gulf Coast Open: Pitcher & Catcher Reports

PBR Mississippi Staff

PERKINSTON, MS - The Gulf Coast Open & Rising Stars ID was held on Tuesday, July 11th at Mississippi Gulf Coast CC in Perkinston, MS. This event was an open event that consisted of some of the top prospects from the 2024-2028 classes across all parts of Mississippi. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics via TrackMan. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Tuesday.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at the scouting reports on all pitchers and catchers who attended the Gulf Coast Open.
