Top Prospects: Future Game Trials


Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR of NC

The PBR Future Games is the top underclass showcase event in the country each year.  PBR territories from across the country work to put together teams of the top uncommitted, underclass players to compete each year.  Team Carolina is made of players from North Carolina and South Carolina.  

On June 23 and 24, PBR of North Carolina ran invite only events to continue to identify players for Team Carolina.  Players attending the Future Game Trials were able to go through a full pro-style workout, running a laser timed 60, working through an offensive evaluation, and a defensive evaluation.  Pitchers threw controlled bullpens for PBR Scouts. Each day was live streamed with over 60 colleges and university programs watching one, or both days of workouts through the PBR of NC channel on Watch Your Game's live streaming feed.

As we finish up our coverage of the Future Game Trials, the staff at PBR puts together the Top Prospects from the two events.  At each event, PBR Scouts work to identify a player grade on each athlete, based on his performance at that event.  Player and class rankings are derived from these player grades, across all events, plus the extensive coverage PBR provides throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons.  The grades below do not necessarily predict a player ranking, as these player grades are snapshots from the one day workout.
