On Tuesday, July 2, Prep Baseball of South Carolina held tryouts for Team Carolina at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. ​​The Team Carolina Trials/Rising Star determines candidates for some of the biggest invitation-only events of the summer, such as the Top Prospect Games, PB JR Future Games and the PB Future Games. The event featured players from the graduating classes of 2028-2029.

The event began with a professional workout for all fielders, followed by a 60-meter run with laser timing recorded using Swift technology, a BP with ball flight analysis by TrackMan, a defense evaluation, and finally a pitcher’s bullpen where every pitch was tracked by Trackman.

Below we look at the statistical breakdown of the event.
