TrackMan Hitting Leaders: Dirtbags Fall Scout Day


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

PBR of North Carolina went just across the border to Danville, VA to run a PBR Scout Day with the Dirtbags.  A small group of Dirtbag players attended but it gave PBR scouts a chance to know the players in attendance and walk many of them through their first PBR Event.

Below we will highlight players that attended the event.  For the full roster and stat package you can click HERE.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Sweet Spot %
1 Jason Linder VA King George 2025 SS 56 %
2 Fletcher Owens NC Homeschool 2027 2B 53 %

4 Cooper Partin NC Southern Alamance 2027 1B 46 %
5 Nicholas Young NC Person 2025 SS 45 %

LAUNCH ANGLE PERCENTAGE

Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball.  While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.
