Open IDs give Prep Baseball Scouts a chance to see players from their area while also working to fill out rosters for upcoming regional and national events like the Future Games, Super Sophomore Games, and Top Prospect Games.  The Team Carolina Trials fall under this Open ID forum.  The Team Carolina Trials: Triangle brought Prep Baseball to Clayton, NC on a very nice playing surface, allowing players to perform at a high level.

The event started with position players going through their athletic testing, including height and weight measurements, a vertical jump, RSI jumps, grip strength testing, and a laser timed 60.  Offensive evaluations were next, including multiple rounds of BP.  BP was followed by defensive evaluations and then pitcher bullpens.  

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.
