Trackman Leaders: Fall ID-Triangle/ DPC Scout Day - Hitters


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

   

On Tuesday October 25th PBR of North Carolina was at DPC Baseball Academy in Clayton, NC hosting the Fall ID - Triangle and the DPC Academy Scout Day. The workout featured players in the 2024-2026 grad classes.

The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight information. After the pitchers the position players ran a laser timed 60 then took live batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering information on each swing. The workout concluded with outfielders and infielders going through their defensive evaluation. 

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.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hard Hit %
1 Dominic Pegues NC Clayton 2024 1B 50 %
2 Will Hicks NC Cleveland 2025 SS 40 %
3 Grant Buchanan NC Southside Christian 2026 3B 12 %

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.
