This one-of-a-kind event will feature the best uncommitted Class of 2024 prospects and select 2025 prospects from our 40-plus state coverage area and Canada. The Future Games will take place from Wednesday, July 27 through Saturday, July 30 at LakePoint in Emerson, Ga. 

LakePoint’s elite baseball facilities include eight Major League-sized fields, which are surfaced entirely with synthetic turf provided by Shaw Sports Turf. This high-tech playing surface has been designed to accurately mimic the bounce of the ball off of real dirt and grass, and will allow fields to be playable immediately after rain.

The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for Class of 2024 prospects and select 2025 prospects. In years past, more than 330 college coaches from all over the country were in attendance.

Players will also receive maximum visibility from college coaches all over the country, in addition to being promoted through the Prep Baseball Report multimedia platforms. 

Each state's team will play three games. On Wednesday, the first day of the event, all position players will be put through a showcase workout in which they will run 60s, take batting practice and be evaluated defensively at their primary position.

Players participating in the PBR Future Games will receive the PBR Tech Package which includes TrackMan hitting and pitching metrics, Blast Motion swing metrics, PitchAI biomechanical pitching data, Vizual Edge vision testing analysis, as well as athletic measurements collected by our new partners at Swift Performance.

PBR and Mizuno are partnered to provide players quality products at our youth and high school-aged events across the country – and the Future Games will be no different. Players will be given Mizuno baseball gear to wear during the four-day event. Click here to view more about partners Mizuno.

Rosters

PBR state directors across the country used Preseason ID showcases over the winter to begin developing a list of players to consider inviting to participate at the 2022 Future Games. Each state will be using the spring's high school season and the early summer's events like the Summer Tour and Top Prospect to further fill out the roster that will represent his state at LakePoint in late July. Rosters will update on this page as the season rolls on and we get closer to the 2022 Future Games.

TECH PACKAGE

Following a Prep Baseball Report event, players will receive unrivaled access to their advanced ball-tracking and swing metrics through the TrackMan and Blast Connect apps as well as visual skills through Vizual Edge testing. Furthermore, key metrics will live inside your Prep Baseball Report profile to help players in their recruitment process.  

TrackMan is the global leader in ball-tracking accuracy. Following a Prep Baseball Report event, all players will get unrivaled access to their performance data in the Trackman interactive app. Players can create custom dashboards that unlock both hitting and pitching data.

  • See each pitch trajectory in 3D from multiple viewpoints

  • Create defined tags to label and compare pitches

  • Pin pitches together to create tunneling visualizations between different pitch types

  • Visualize each pitch location

Hitting Features Include:

  • Hitting data access includes: Exit speed, distance traveled, launch angle, launch direction, spin rate, contact depth and contact side/height for each swing.

  • Visualize plate coverage

  • Pairing of all data points on each swing

Key ball flight metrics will also live inside player profiles at PrepBaseballReport.com for the benefit of college coaches and recruiters, which will help prospects advance to the next level. TrackMan’s advanced data metrics will augment what players already receive from a PBR showcase, which includes an edited video of their performance, personalized scouting reports, verified statistics, run times and positional velocities.

Blast is the global leader in swing analysis and used by nearly every MLB organization. Following a Prep Baseball Report event, players will receive access to BlastConnect in the Blast App, that unlocks critical insights and actionable data from their performance.

Vizual Edge is a market leader in visual performance assessment and training that multiple MLB clubs use for its players. During Prep Baseball Report events, players will take the Vizual Edge 15-minute baseline evaluation. Following the event, players will receive an email PDF of your results – labeled as your EDGE Score – that will identify your visual strengths and weaknesses and how they directly impact your on-field performance. Visual skills are critical for pitch recognition, reaction speed, timing, seeing spin on the ball, defensive performance and much more. Your EDGE Score will also live inside your Prep Baseball Report profile.

ProPlayAI will be delivering lab-accurate biomechanics data for purposes of player assessments and in-game analysis, all from a single video camera. ProPlayAI’s biomechanics platform for baseball pitchers, PitchAI, is powered by computer vision algorithms that extract 3D skeletal data from a single 2D video camera such as an iPhone. The platform provides full-body kinematics to analyze lead-knee dynamics, torso and pelvic motion, arm motion, and aspects of the kinetic chain and pitch efficiency. 

All showcase prospects will receive a numbered, state-specific PBR jersey sponsored by our partners at Mizuno. Players will also receive a PBR Future Games hat sponsored by Mizuno and a gear bag with a bag tag.

Prep Baseball Report events will be equipped with Swift Performance’s industry-leading athletic testing technologies to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data for all participants, ultimately delivering new insights into athletes’ speed, explosiveness and power for recruiters to evaluate.

Through both systems, the Swift UNO timing gates and EZEJump mats, athletes will be evaluated on a multitude of metrics that goes beyond just the 60 yard dash. Participants will be put through a jump protocol as well as adding 10 and 30 yard splits to the 60 yard dash.
