Tennessee Senior Games: Catcher Reports

PBR Tennessee

NASHVILLE, TN - The Tennessee Senior Games was held on Saturday, September 23rd at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN. This event was an open event that consisted of players from the 2024 class 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.

Finishing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at all scouting reports from the event. Lastly, we look at all catchers from the Tennessee Senior Games.
