Quick Hitters: Cane Central Fall Scout Day Pitchers

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

On Saturday October 21st PBR of North Carolina was on hand at the Historic Durham Bulls Park for a Scout Day with the Canes Central Organization The Scout Day featured players from the 2024-2027 grad classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive workout, followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers, the position players ran a laser timed 60 then took BP on the field with Trackman gathering ball flight information. The night concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

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