2024 Preseason ID Leaderboard: Max Bat Speed


PBR Texas Staff

TEXAS - Starting on Jauary 3rd, we hosted five Preseason ID's across the state. We started in Dallas, then to San Antonio and Houston. We finished off in Waco and Houston for a second time. The purpose of these events is to give players a chance to shocase the work they put in during the offseason, and that they did. Players from all classes showed that they were active during the offseason and today we continue our 2024 Preseason ID leaderboards with a look at the Top Bat Speeds, split into underclass & upperclass.
