Future/Junior Future Games Trials: Outfielders


PBR Alabama Staff

The Future/Junior Future Games Trials took place this past Sunday, May 23rd, at Spain Park High School in Birmingham, AL. This event hosted a wide variety of players in different classes, ranging from 2022's-2026's at the event. All of these players aimed toward potentially earning an invite to the Future Games for 2023-2024 players, Junior Future Games for 2025-2026 players, and the Southeast Unsigned Senior Games for players in the 2022 class. All three of these events mentioned are prestigious events that are played at LakePoint Sports Complex in Emerson, GA at the end of July. 

Today, we continue our individual scout analysis on each player that attended the event as we look at the 16 outfielders that went through the pro-style workout. Several of these players also threw a bullpen off the mound as well. Tomorrow we wrap up our individualized scouting analysis on each player by looking at the infielders from the event. Today, let's take a look at the outfielders.
