Yearly Leaders - Exit Velocity


Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

Although 2020 was a difficult year for athletes across the state, we were fortunate to be able to continue with our scouting coverage as well as run events when we had the opportunity. 

One of the biggest question marks throughout the year was what was going to happen to college recruiting. Scouts all over the country have had to get clever with their approach but there has been plenty of recruiting still going on. College coaches are finding a way to get it done and Prep Baseball Report has been there to help provide resources and information to anyone who is looking to find more players. Our coverage of the state will continue moving forward and should hopefully be a bit easier as things get closer to normal in 2021. 

One of the biggest additions to PBR in 2020 was the implementation of higher level technology with advanced data metrics.Prep Baseball Report events across the country were powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading portable radar system to capture pinpoint, accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and TrackMan are dedicated to recognizing talent and sharing what we discover across all of our platforms. 

As we wrap up 2020, we will continue reviewing some of the top performances of the past year. Today, we will be taking a look at the top exit velocities we recorded from our 2020 events. The data below is a combination of exit velocity data from batting practice as well as exit velocity off of the tee. All of the data below is from players who attended PBR events or workouts ONLY

Showcases help identify which prospects have asserted themselves towards the top of their class as well as who might be one of the next youngsters to emerge onto the scene. They also serve as potential identifiers for invite-only events such as our Future Games and Junior Future Games

All of the data is hosted on a player's profile page. To see an individual player, click on their name in the list.
