Prep Baseball Report

NC/SC Border Battle - NC Outfielder Preview

Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

In June of 2016 Prep Baseball Report expanded into North Carolina.  This past year, PBR took another step toward complete territorial coverage of the country by adding South Carolina to its list of states with “boots on the ground”.  A rivalry in the making begins June 24th as North Carolina and South Carolina face off in the Border Battle at Winthrop University.

Each state has put together impressive rosters for college coaches and pro scouts to see as players will represent their area.  Each position player will go through a full workout, including defensive and offensive evaluations, followed by a controlled scrimmage.  Pitchers will face live hitters in the scrimmage sessions. 

*College Coaches and Pro Scouts in attendance will be provided a scout book for the event.  PBR of NC and SC will also provide lunch for those that are working.
