On Wednesday June 15th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Ting Park for a Scout Day with the TPA Organization. The Scout Day featured players from the 2023-2026 Grad Classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight information. Following the bullpens, players ran a laser timed 60 using swift technology. Position players then took batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering ball flight data. The day concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive workout. 

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