Mississippi Preseason ID: Pitcher Reports

PBR Mississippi Staff

Mississippi - The Mississippi Preseason ID was held Saturday, January 14th at Freedom Ridge Park in Ridgeland, MS. This was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2023-2026 classes. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, ran the 30 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens during the workout and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. 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 Saturday.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for these events, we take a look at each positional player that attended either of the events. Check back tomorrow as we conclude our post-event coverage by taking a look at each pitcher in attendance.
