Preseason All State Superlatives: Top Defensive Catchers


Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

The Preseason All State Showcase took place on Sunday Jan. 30th at the P27 Baseball Performance Center along with Lexington Ballpark in Lexington, South Carolina. Prospects from the event came from around the Palmetto state on what turned out to be a wonderful winter afternoon.  

A premier event for premier talent in South Carolina, we have seen a lot of very talented prospects workout at this event prior to their spring season.  Coming off each individual player's preseason workout, this event tends to see players blow up their numbers, giving coaches and scouts a reason to take notice as they prep their spring schedules for evaluation. 

The event began with pitcher bullpens with each pitch tracked by Trackman, along with Pitch AI.  A pro-style workout for all the position players followed that included the 60 yard dash, BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis, and a defensive evaluation. 

We have highlighted some of the top performers:
