Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

   

On Tuesday October 25th PBR of North Carolina was at DPC Baseball Academy in Clayton, NC hosting the Fall ID - Triangle and the DPC Academy Scout Day. The workout featured players in the 2024-2026 grad classes.

The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight information. After the pitchers the position players ran a laser timed 60 then took live batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering information on each swing. The workout concluded with outfielders and infielders going through their defensive evaluation. 

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