Prep Baseball Report

Superlatives: Charlotte Preseason ID

Brandon Hall
NC / Mid-ATL Director of Scouting

Prep Baseball of North Carolina opened the 2024 event season with two Preseason IDs. On Sunday January 28th, On Deck Baseball Academy hosted Prep Baseball for the indoor event. A high level facility, players were able to go through athletic testing, positional evaluations, as well as pitching and BP evaluations.  Prep Baseball scouts were on hand to run the event verify stats, and evaluate the players involved.

On Deck Baseball Academy offered plenty of room for players to stretch their arms while getting a good workout indoors.  Players had room to run a laser timed 30, while catchers, infielders, and outfielders were able to stretch their arms in their evaluation phase.  Pitchers threw off of indoor mounds on a day that saw rain pummel the Carolinas.

In all, twenty players took part in the event.  Below we take a data dive into the results of the workout.
