Event Location: Williamsport, PA
 
At each Baseball Factory Youth Skills Challenge our staff will conduct and track the best performers from several different categories including, but not limited to the following:
 
1. Glove to glove times for all position players (C’s, INF’s, & OF’s) – This is the time from which the ball hits the players glove until it hits the target’s glove. 
2. Top throwing velocity and accuracy for all players.
3. Top exit velocity (not for all events) and line drive drill results for all players
4. Lowest 40 times and home to home times (not for all events). 
 
*We may end up adding more skills challenges in the future. 
**All mph readings are from a JUGS radar gun.
