The Kansas Summer Open is open to all high school classes (2023-26) who wish to be identified by PBR and use this as a tool for exposure across the country as well as those who would like to update their profiles with new video, statistics, and information.

This event will take place at Wichita State University. Players will also be evaluated for future invitations to events such as the MOKAN Top Prospect Games, MOKAN Underclass Games and MOKAN Preseason All-State. Other invitations could be to National Prep Baseball Report events like the PBR Future Games, PBR ProCase and the premier professional scouting event: the PBR Super 60. This identification event is for PBR Kansas to continue the task of finding the best talent in the state.

All position players will be put through a pro-style workout. All position players will run a 60 yard dash, take batting practice, and receive defensive position evaluations. Pitchers will throw in a bullpen setting and have velocities of all pitches recorded. The workout will be videotaped, and edited videos will be hosted inside the player’s profile at PrepBaseballReport.com. Also included in the profile will be the player’s scouting report, picture and verified statistics.

SCOUTING, TECHNOLOGY AND DATA ANALYSIS IN ONE EVENT

 

PBR PROFILE

Every prospect's recruiting process starts and ends with the PBR Profile and our showcases revolve around that player profile. For first time attendees, a new PBR 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 PBR 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 PBR 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

PBR stats are the industry standard in the scouting community, carrying the highest credibility in actionable data. PBR 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 Brower 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 PBR 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 PBR Profiles and used for video spotlights, content, social media and more. Videos are accessible to all PBR+ subscribers.

SCOUTING REPORTS

The 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 PBR 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. 

POST-EVENT CONTENT

One of the many results of a PBR showcase is getting all the information collected to the public in a timely and digestible manner. Every showcase will be featured on the Prep Baseball Report website and social channels through various forms of post-event content, leaderboards, video spotlights and more. 

ACCOUNT DASHBOARD

In an effort to elevate the post-event experience for players who attend a PBR Showcase, the Account Dashboard is now your one stop shop to view all of your post-event deliverables, including your Video, TrackMan, Blast Data, Vizual Edge Score and more. Your Dashboard also gives you a window into upcoming events, calendar management and more.
