Elite South Scout Day: Quick Hitters- Position Players


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Sunday May 23rd PBR of NC was on hand at Lenoir CC to host a scout day with Elite South Baseball. The scout day also featured some players not part of the organization who participated in the workout. The event featured 24 players in total with grad years ranging from 2022-2026. 

The day started with catchers going through their defensive evaluation. Pitchers then threw a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering ball flight data. After the bullpens the position players participated in a pro-style workout starting with a laser timed 60, followed by live BP with Trackman recording ball flight information and the day finished with infielders and outfielders getting a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take a look at some position players who stood out during the workout.
