The PBR Oregon staff hosted more than 20 showcases in 2021 – from invite-only events for select prospects, events for incoming freshmen, unsigned seniors, and the list goes on. Before we close the book on 2021 for good, we're going to check out some of the top showcase performances of last year.

To make your mark at a PBR showcase in 2022, check out the recently released PBR Oregon 2022 winter calendar.

Below you'll find several different pitch metrics collected at our events via our TrackMan units, such as spin rates and pitch action. Read on to see which Oregon pitchers have enhanced data attached to their arsenals.
