On Saturday June 4th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Charlotte Latin for a scout day with the Queen City Corndogs and the Charlotte Megastars. The scout day featured players from the 2023-2025 grad classes.

The day began with players running a laser timed 60 recorded by Swift Technology. Position players then went through a defensive workout starting with catchers followed by the outfielders and infielders. After defense, players took BP on the field with Trackman collection ball flight data. The two teams met again on Sunday playing controlled games against each other. During the games Trackman gathered information on the pitchers.

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance looking at the top performers in different categories.  Look for more statistics and 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 Ashton Wolfe NC Butler 2023 LHP 63 %

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.
