Quick Hitters: Carolina Prospects - Position Players

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday June 3rd PBR or North Carolina was on hand at Charlotte Latin for a Scout Day with the On Deck O’s, NCBA Golden Spikes and Carolina Prospects. The Scout Day featured players from the 2024-2026 Grad Classes. 

The day began with players going through a rotation that involved running a laser timed 60 and taking batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After batting practice, position players went through a defensive evaluation. The scout day concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering information on each pitch. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more information to follow in the coming days.
