Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Tuesday September 12th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Knightdale High for the Fall Triangle ID and the Rawlings Prospects Scout Day. The events ran together and featured players from the 2024-2027 grad classes. 

The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting data on each pitch. After the pitchers the position players ran a laser timed 60 followed by batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. The events concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

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