On Sunday August 29th PBR of North Carolina was on hand for a Scout Day with Fungo Cadet. The event featured 14 players from the 2023-2025 grad classes.

The day started with the catcher going through his defensive evaluation making throws to second base. Pitchers followed by throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with Trackman gathering ball flight data. Position players started their day running a laser timed 60 followed by batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering ball flight data. The day concluded with infielders and outfielders going through a defensive evaluation.
