PBR Alabama Staff

Today, we wrap up our post event coverage of the All-State Games that was held on Tuesday, June 8th at Troy University by taking a look at the 51 infielders that were present at the event. This was a very athletic group of infielders as many showed very well during the event. We have broken the infielders into two groups with the scout analysis as this article will look at infielders with jersey numbers 53-96. Many of these infielders also threw an inning on the mound during game play. 

Let's take a look at the infielders that wore No.'s 53-96 from the event.
