Quick Hitters: Carolina Clippers

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

PBR was at Pfeiffer College for a Scout Day with the Carolina Clippers organization on Saturday October 28th. A new organization that is building, hails from the Stanly County area, just outside of the greater Charlotte area.  

Position players went through a full pro-style workout, including a timed 60, an offensive workout, and a positional workout.  Pitchers threw a controlled bullpen.  PBR scouts were on hand to watch the entire workout, collecting notes and stats.  TrackMan was used to capture ball flight info on pitchers and hitters.  Swift Athletics laser timers were used on the 60 yard dash, also getting a 10yd and 30yd split on each runner.
