Preseason Uncommitted: Scouting Reports - Pitchers


PBR California Staff

New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast

STOCKTON, CA - SuperBowl Sunday wasn’t just about Tom Brady capturing his 7th ring, as the day started out with 40 uncommitted California high schoolers showcasing their skills at the historic Billy Hebert Field. Desire and determination to be seen from the upperclass uncommits matched that of the Buccaneers defense swarming to the football to stop the 500 million dollar Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The ability to hit to all fields, make accurate throws from the outfield, athletic infield display and consistent strikes on the mound highlighted the event. 

Technology once again dominated the event with video production, live stream, TrackMan, Blast Motion, Twitter, Instagram and scout eyes working non-stop to showcase each player. However, no uncommitted event is complete without a detailed scouting report from the Prep Baseball Report scouting staff. In this addition we dive into pitchers.
