East Tennessee Fall ID: Positional Player Reports

Prep Baseball Tennessee

JOHNSON CITY, TN - The East Tennessee Fall ID was held on Sunday, November 12th at TVA Credit Union Stadium in Johnson City, TN. This event was an open event that consisted of players from the 2024-2029 classes from Volunteer state. Players went through an extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60-yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to get numbers and metrics on TrackMan. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing at the event.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at the scouting reports from the event. First, we look at all positional players who attended the East TN Fall ID.
