PBR was in Davidson, NC on Sunday June 2, 2024, at Wilson Field home field to Davidson College . To see the PBR Scout Day with Rawlings Prospects. 20 players from the 2025-2028 classes were on hand for the workout day.

The day started with players running a laser timed  60. From there hitters took multiple rounds of BP with TrackMan tracking each ball put in fair play.  After the offensive evaluations, players were evaluated at their primary defensive positions.  To finish the day, pitchers threw controlled bullpens, again with TrackMan tracking each pitch and giving analytic data on each player.

Below we begin to break down the player performances from the workout.  To see the full roster with all of the stats from the workout, you can CLICK HERE.
