Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

The Five" is a weekly blog that highlights high-performing athletes from across North Carolina.  PBR Scouts use information gathered from PBR events, PBR Scout Days, and PBR Tournaments to put together the weekly list of five players

This week "The Five" highlights players from the Dry Pond Blue Sox Scout Day held back in September at Moor Park in Mooresville, NC. The players went through a full pro-style workout. Featured below are some standouts from the workout. As usual all are uncommitted.
