PBR Midwest ProCase

INVITE ONLY EVENT

This event is by invite-only. Please choose the option below to proceed:



The PBR Midwest ProCase is an exclusive opportunity for top prospects in the 2022 and 2023 graduating classes. Last year's ProCase saw many of the top grads add their names to follow lists for the MLB Draft. We look forward to continuing this opportunity for the top players in the Upper Midwest. 

Pitchers will throw a controlled bullpen session in front of the scouting contingent.  TrackMan will be used to track ball flight and give feedback on velocity, spin rate, and movement metrics. 

Position players will run through a modified pro-style workout. Again, TrackMan will be used to follow the ball flight off the bat. Blast Motion sensors will also be used to give scouts feedback on swing analytics prior to contact.  Position players will workout defensively and have a run time taken as well. 

After the event, each player will be connected with every Major League team as all 30 MLB organizations subscribe to PBR.  Each player's profile will be updated with a head shot, verified stats, an evaluation, TrackMan data, Blast Motion Data (hitters), and video.  After the event, PBR will publish stories highlighting the performance of the players in attendance.

The Prep Baseball Report has become the authoritative voice of high school baseball. Our website has developed into the ultimate promotional vehicle for players. We hope you can join us at the PBR Midwest ProCase as we prepare for another successful high school season. 

*Registration will close 48 hours prior to event date

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.
