On Friday June 14th Prep Baseball of South Carolina was on hand at Newberry College in Newberry, SC for a scout day with the Diamond Devils Organization. The event featured players from the 2025 grad classes, and was the continuation of the scout day from May 18th that was postponed with this group because of rain.

The event began with A pro-style workout for all the position players followed that included running a laser timed 60 recorded using Swift Technology, BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis, a defensive evaluation, and finished with pitcher bullpens with each pitch tracked by Trackman.  

Below we will look at the statistical breakdown for the event.
