Scout Day Statistical Analysis: Rawlings Prospects / College Prospect Open


Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

At the same time, PBR ran an Open Scout Day, allowing players from across North Carolina to update their statistics, evaluation, and video within their PBR Profile.  All players attending the event are receiving the updated information and video, as well as updating their player grade in the PBR files, allowing PBR to continue to rank players in the various graduating classes.  Players with a player grade will also be considered for “Invite Only” events as well as national events like the PBR Future Games and the Super 60.

On a beautiful Tuesday, PBR was on hand at Campbell’s Jim Perry Stadium to run the Rawlings Prospects Scout Day in conjunction with the College Prospect Open Scout Day.  The Rawlings Prospects is a club organization that runs teams at the high school ages, and younger. For their scout day, players were run through a full pro-style workout on the turf field at Campbell.

Today we will take a look at the statistics from the event as well as some of the top performers.  In the coming days, the video from the event will post to the Player Profiles and will be followed by evaluations on each player in attendance.
