Team Carolina Trials - East: Trackman Hitting Leaders


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Wednesday July 6th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Jim Perry Stadium on the campus of Campbell University for the Team Carolina Trials - East. The Team Carolina Trials leads to identifying prospects for some of the summer’s biggest invite only events like, PBR Southeast Senior Games, Top Prospect Games, and the PBR Future Games. The event featured players from the 2023-2026 grad classes.

The Day began with players running a laser timed 60 along with having jumping metrics recorded by Swift Technology. Position Players then took batting practice on the field with Trackman recording ball flight data. After BP, catchers, infielders and outfielders went through a defensive evaluation. The day concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight data. 

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

HARD HIT PERCENTAGE

TrackMan is able to track and follow exit velocities of each hitter.  Based on the individual's top exit velocity, TrackMan is able to give us a percentage of hard hit balls.  This percentage is based off of each individual hitter's top exit velocity.

1 Gunner Jordan SC Marlboro Co. 2024 1B 63 %
2 Dylan Pasternak NC Leesville Road 2024 2B 42 %

LAUNCH ANGLE PERCENTAGE

Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball.  While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.
