Additional Positions (Optional)

Player and Parent,

You are cordially invited to attend the Prep Baseball's Rising Stars ID meant for 2028 and 2029 graduates. This event has a dual function. For most participants, this will be their first showcase event - an initial step toward achieving a player’s baseball goals. Part of this event is educational: there will be a lecture about what scouts look for, how to comport themselves, what to expect in the recruiting process, and the overall landscape of playing at the next level. The second function of the event is to identify young talent, and at the same time getting valuable coaching in the showcase process. As the preeminent scouting service across our 40+ state coverage area, Prep Baseball is looking to identify promising young prospects at an earlier age so we can more accurately track their progress through their career.

This event will also serve as an identifier for invitations to the Junior Future Games in August. The Junior Future Games will run in conjunction with Prep Baseball's Future Games. The Future Games features the top High School players in the Classes of 2025 and 2026 from across Prep Baseball's 40+ state coverage area. It is one of the most highly recruited events of the summer and attracts more than 200 college coaches from across the country each year.

The Junior Future Games, an Invitation-Only event, will feature the best identified prospects from across the country in a four-day tournament at Lake Point in Cartersville, GA. Participants will compete against other top-level players while representing their respective state. The Junior Future Games will take place at Lake Point in Cartersville, GA. This state-of-the-art facility features 8 all-turf fields.

NOTE: Players must use BBCOR bats during batting practice

SCOUTING, TECHNOLOGY AND DATA ANALYSIS IN ONE EVENT

 

PREP BASEBALL PROFILE

Every prospect's recruiting process starts and ends with the Prep Baseball Profile and our showcases revolve around that player profile. For first time attendees, a new Prep Baseball profile will be created, hosting all of your information, videos, head shot, metrics and more, making it one of your single most important tools in the recruiting process. Repeat showcase performances will continue to update your profile, creating a history of prospect progress and ensuring the most up-to-date information is easily accessible throughout the fast-paced scouting community. These profiles are also searchable by a range of data points and metrics through our advanced search engine, making it a one stop shop for recruiters and scouts.

MIZUNO

All showcase prospects will receive a numbered Prep Baseball jersey sponsored by our partners at Mizuno. The Mizuno Tee is the all around tee shirt for every activity, made from lightweight textured fabric, and used to identify prospects throughout the showcase process.

STATS

Prep Baseball stats are the industry standard in the scouting community, carrying the highest credibility in actionable data. Prep Baseball profiles are the most reliable resources for prospect information due to this reason alone. Stats are collected using only the highest of standard equipment including Swift laser timers, Trackman and Stalker radars. All stats are hosted in player profiles accompanied by recently launched Performance Tiers that show where a prospect ranks among his peers.

VIDEO

All prospect performances will be professionally video taped, edited and uploaded into their Prep Baseball Profile. Videos will consist of multiple angles and record all aspects of the showcase including 60’s, live batting practice, and defensive performances. Videos are hosted in Prep Baseball Profiles and used for video spotlights, content, social media and more. Videos are accessible to all PBR+ subscribers.

SCOUTING REPORTS

Prep Baseball Report is built at the hands of some of the most tenured and respected scouts in the industry. We pride ourselves on our level of prospect knowledge, most of which is gained through Prep Baseball events. Showcases are designed and engineered by state Scouting Directors with the goal of collecting as much information about a prospect as possible and relaying our findings to the public through data collection and scouting reports. 

ACCOUNT DASHBOARD

In an effort to elevate the post-event experience for players who attend a Prep Baseball Showcase, the Account Dashboard is now your one stop shop to view all of your post-event deliverables, including your Video, TrackMan, Report, and more.

TrackMan is the global leader in ball-tracking accuracy. Following a Prep Baseball 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.

  • Pitching data access includes: release speed, spin rate, spin axis, release height, extension, horizontal and vertical break, and location on each pitch 

  • 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 Prep Baseball showcase, which includes an edited video of their performance, personalized scouting reports, verified statistics, run times and positional velocities.
