Statistical Breakdown: C35 Scout Day


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Wednesday October 11th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Boshamer Stadium for a Scout Day with C35. The Scout Day featured players from the 2024-2027 grad classes.

The night 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.
