Statistical Analysis: Tri-State Arsenal Underclass Scout Day


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR was on hand in Benson, NC at Vyas Community Park on Saturday March, 13th for a scout day with the Tri-State Arsenal Underclass. The event featured 26 players from the 2024 and 2025 grad classes with most of the kids coming from the central to eastern part of the state. 

Position players got the day started going through their pro-style workout. Players ran a laser timed 60, followed by an offensive evaluation and defensive evaluation.  During live BP, TrackMan was able to gather ball flight information off the bat.  After the pro-style workout, pitchers threw a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering ball flight data.

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start the day. The 60 was ran on a natural surface. 

Rank Name State School Class Pos 60-yard
1 Logan Lowe NC C.E. Jordan 2024 SS 7.15
2 Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 7.28
3 Shane Bernhardt NC Holly Springs 2024 LHP 7.30
4 Tristan Stancil NC Greenfield 2025 RHP 7.55
5 Marty Holland NC Princeton 2024 OF 7.74

TRACKMAN MAX EXIT VELOCITY (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the exit velocity.  Below are the top Exit Velocities produced during live BP.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Marty Holland NC Princeton 2024 OF 93.6 mph
2 Joshua Parnell NC Princeton 2025 LHP 90.7 mph
3 Luke Durham NC Broughton 2024 3B 90.7 mph
4 Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 90.2 mph
5 Triston Gardner NC Cleveland 2025 3B 90.0 mph

TRACKMAN MAX DISTANCE (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the distance each hit travels, if in fair territory.  Below are the top max distances produced during live BP.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Ryan Hartley NC Fuquay Varina 2024 CF 332 ft
2 Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 317 ft
3 Shane Bernhardt NC Holly Springs 2024 LHP 310 ft
4 Cole Norris NC South Johnston 2025 1B 307 ft
5 Jonathan Vondette NC Apex Friendship 2024 C 301 ft

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shortstop throwing across the infield, or from 1B throwing to 2B and 3B in the pro-style workout.  Coaches are working to evaluate rhythm, footwork, hands, exchanges, arm action, accuracy, and carry.  To measure arm strength PBR Scouts utilize a radar gun.  Below are the top posted positional velocities from the day.

Rank Name State School Class Pos INF Velo
1 Tristan Stancil NC Greenfield 2025 RHP 77
^ Logan Lowe NC C.E. Jordan 2024 SS 77
2 Camden Hunt NC Scotland Christian 2025 SS 75
^ Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 75
^ Joshua Parnell NC Princeton 2025 LHP 75
3 Luke Durham NC Broughton 2024 3B 74
4 Brady Hubbell NC Broughton 2025 SS 73
^ John Snipes NC Athens Drive 2024 3B 73
5 Triston Gardner NC Cleveland 2025 3B 71

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – OUTFIELDERS

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the plate.  Throws were measured by a radar gun to gauge arm strength.  Scouts are also working to see exchange, arm path, carry, and accuracy.

Rank Name State School Class Pos OF Velo
1 Marty Holland NC Princeton 2024 OF 79
2 Shane Bernhardt NC Holly Springs 2024 LHP 75
3 Ryan Hartley NC Fuquay Varina 2024 CF 72
^ Luke Heaps NC Thales Academy 2025 OF 72

CATCHER POP TIMES & POSITIONAL VELOCITY

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.

Rank Name State School Class Pos C Velo
1 Dawson Anderson NC South Johnston 2024 C 72
2 Jonathan Vondette NC Apex Friendship 2024 C 71
3 Nicklaus Reed NC C E Jordan 2024 C 68
