South Mississippi Rising Stars ID: Pitcher Reports

Matt Miller
State Director


MADISON, MS - The South MS Rising Stars ID was held on Saturday, April 6th at The Southern Performance Institute in Madison, MS. This event was an open event that consisted of some prospects from the 2028-2029 classes across all parts of Mississippi. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, 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 at the event.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look at the scouting reports from the South Mississippi Rising Stars ID.
