The Best of 2020: Top Positional Velocities

Brandon Hall
Executive Director of Scouting, PBR NC

Prep Baseball Report of North Carolina continued to grow in 2020.  In the midst of a national pandemic, PBR is proud to be able to continue to report on players and allow players to post verified statistics and video for college coaches and pro scouts to follow.  The number of in-event participants was kept down throughout the summer and fall to continue to ensure player and staff safety, but PBR was able to add to their planned schedule to see a record number of players in 2020.

We continue our look back at 2020 coverage with the top positional velocities produced in front of PBR Scouts.  These arm grades were taken by PBR Scouts at PBR events, or by a PBR Scout attending an event or workout.  All radar readings were verified by PBR scouts.

Infielder Positional Velocity

Infielders typically workout at shortstop or first base during the pro-style workout.  Coaches and scouts are watching for rhythm, footwork, soft hands, transitions, arm action, release, carry, and accuracy.  While a radar gun may not give a scout a ton of information it does add a metric to the workout process.
