PBR Wisconsin Staff

On March 13, the PBR Wisconsin team hosted the annual Madison Preseason ID, at GRB Baseball Academy in Windsor, Wis. This was an open event for all high school classes (2022-25) and gave our staff an ample look at the area's top players.

On Wednesday we published our biggest takeaways and highlights from Sunday’s showcase within our Quick Hits story. Today, we’ll dive right into the statistical side of things, analyzing Sunday’s top performers from several different statistical categories. Throughout the rest of this week, we’ll be diving deeper into all of the data we collected, too, with the help of our Blast Motion and TrackMan devices.

+ C Joshua Gilroy (Arrowhead, 2024) had not only had the hardest-hit ball of Sunday’s event but the hardest-hit ball out of all our Preseason ID events thus far at 102.7 mph, a truly impressive number from the uncommitted sophomore. Following Gilroy was OF Luke Heinkel (Brookfield East, 2023). From the left-handed batter's box, Heinkel used his sturdy 6-foot-1, 210 pound frame to generate exit speed up to 100.9 mph. The third hardest-hit ball during Sunday’s event came from INF Leo Lauscher (Eau Claire Memorial, 2024), who put together a solid round of BP and recorded the event's farthest hit baseballs (386 feet max).

+ While Wech impressed on the mound, he showcased his two-way potential during the infield portion of Sunday’s event. Wech is an athletic mover in the infield dirt with a strong arm, one that topped out at 89 mph across the diamond, which makes him a viable left side of the infield type player. Following Wech was another name who had a solid overall day, INF Jack Shepski (Waunakee, 2023), topping out at 88 mph on his throws to first. Another potential two-way prospect, Dreier’s arm strength translates well from mound to the infield, recording the third hardest throw from the infield at 87 mph.

+ Recent Future Game participant, OF Quinn Falish (De Pere, 2023) led all outfielders in outfield velocity, topping at 93 mph. At a physical 6-foot-2, 195 pounds Falish moves well for his size, coupling it with impressive arm strength, adding to his stock as he remains uncommitted. OF Garrett Kay (Waterford Union, 2023) is another uncommitted name to know going into the spring. Kay was able to show his innate arm speed during the outfield defense portion, topping out at 91 mph. Drumm added to his already impressive day by also throwing 91 mph on his hardest throw to home during his defensive workout.
