Super 60: Vizual Edge Testing Leaders

By Lukas McKnight
Director of Baseball at Vizual Edge

On Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report hosted its 19th edition of the Super 60 Pro Showcase on the outskirts of Milwaukee, Wis., at the brand-new Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital Performance Center – or the MOSH Center, for short. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We’ve been diligently breaking down our findings in the days since last Sunday’s illuminating showcase. You can find some of our previous analysis linked below:

This year's Super 60 also marked the second consecutive year that Vizual Edge was in attendance, the official vision evaluation and training technology of Prep Baseball Report.

Vision plays a critical role in baseball, and with 80 percent of sensory information being visual, it is important to assess where an athlete's visual skills stand, which is done by measuring the core-six visual skills.

Vizual Edge had Super 60 participants go through the same visual skills assessment that MLB teams have potential draft prospects go through. In the 2020 MLB Draft, 92 percent of hitters selected completed at least one Vizual Edge assessment via MLB scouts. Knowing the importance of vision and tracking with hitting and fielding, MLB teams use Vizual Edge scores as a point of data in draft models and decision making processes – which is why it is important for Super 60 and other PBR event participants to be tested in the same manner.

As we dive deeper into the Vizual Edge metrics, we take a look at the top-five position-players in each of the core-six visual skill categories and where each measurement impacts a player’s on-field performance.
