AL/MS Border Battle: Rosters & Schedule

Austin Sharp
Alabama Scouting Director

The Alabama/Mississippi Border Battle is an Invite-Only event geared toward prospects looking to play baseball at the college level. This event will feature a showcase style workout followed by games for the top prospects in AL and MS. In the first year of the Border Battle in 2020, Alabama took home the series 5-3 over Mississippi, and will be looking to reclaim the title in 2021.

The event will take place on October 9th & 10th at Northeast Mississippi CC in Booneville, MS. Each state will take a 2022, 2023, 2024, and 2025 team. Each player will go through the pro-style workout on Saturday morning and then play against the other state (each class) in two games. Roster spots have been limited to 12-14 players on each team.
