Trackman Analytics: Future Games ID Pitchers
April 6, 2021
The PBR Future Games is the top underclass showcase event in the country each year. PBR territories from across the country work to put together teams of the top uncommitted, underclass players to compete each year. Team Carolina is made of players from North Carolina and South Carolina.
On Saturday March 28th PBR of NC held its Future Games ID along with its Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID at Big League Camp in Marion, NC. Big League Camp is a beautiful facility located next to Lake James that features an all turf baseball field with a spacious indoor facility.
Pitchers and catchers got the day started with catchers going through their defensive workout followed by pitchers throwing bullpens. Trackman was used during the bullpens to gather advanced analytics on each arm. After the bullpens position players ran a laser timed 60 followed by outfielders and infielders going through their defensive workout. BP was set to take place on the field but had to be moved indoors due to thunderstorms and heavy rain in the area. Trackman was used during BP to gather ball flight information.
Throughout the workout, PBR scouts were taking metrics on players while evaluating their complete skill set. Featured below are the pitchers Trackman Analytics from the Future Games ID.
