SoCal Birds Scout Day: PM Session - 2022 Infielders


PBR California Staff


ORANGE, CA. - The SoCal Birds Scout Days exhibited the underclassmen from the 2022 class on the second day of action. We take a closer look at the Infielders on display from the PM session. Close to 40 players were split into two groups for a showcase and live at-bats.

The showcase featured a standard pro-style workout that included the 60-yard sprint, batting practice and defensive workouts at ones respective position. The scout day ended with a highly competitive simulated game. 

 

Trackman, Blast Motion, radar guns, sensors and a team of scouts were hard at work powering the event. You can find the SoCal Upperclass Birds Stats Leaders here.
