EMERSON, GA - The 9th Annual PBR Jr. Future Games started its first day of bracket play games on Saturday across both age groups. After taking part in a pro-style workout on Tuesday, teams were eager to compete against other states while representing their own state today in hopes of being the last team standing. With numerous college coaches watching on as teams competed throughout the day at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, GA, numerous players from Team Alabama showed out en route to a solid day across both age groups.

This event runs in conjunction with the PBR Future Games. The Future Games features the top uncommitted players in the Class of 2024 and 2025 from across the Prep Baseball Report’s 40+ state coverage area. It is one of the most highly recruited events of the summer and attracts more than 300 college coaches from across the country each year.

Today, we take a look back with a brief recap of each game, including players who stood out on all three teams representing the state of Alabama.

Alabama 13U

Facing Michigan in the quarterfinal matchup of the 13U age division, Alabama dropped a tough one to a solid Michigan team by score of 4-3 to end their week in Georgia. After being scoreless throughout the early part of the game, Michigan put together some hits in the middle innings and took a 4-0 lead in the 4th inning.

Alabama wouldn't go down without a fight, however, as SS/RHP Gavin Lang (Crossville) cut the deficit in half in the 6th with a two-run home run to make the score 4-3. Alabama was able to add another to make it 4-3, and headed to the final inning needing one run to tie. After getting runners on 1st and 2nd with two outs, Michigan induced a fly out to left field to strand the the tying and winning runs on base to advance to the semifinals in the 13U age division.

Multiple player from Alabama recorded a hit in a fairly balanced attack offensively. 1B/RHP Andrew Bennett (Mobile Christian) had two hits on the day, and eight other plays recorded a hit, as well. 

Alabama 14U (1)

After going 2-1 in pool play this week, Alabama (1) was matched up with Michigan in their first round of bracket play and dropped the contest by score of 7-1 to end their week in Georgia. Facing a quality team, Alabama (1) just couldn't get much going offensively with only two hits offensively. 

Two of those players who recorded hits in the contest were SS/RHP Brody Lambert (Faith Academy) and 1B/RHP Wyatt Williams (Daphne) with each getting one apiece. Both of those players also worked a couple of innings on the mound, as well. Also throwing an inning on the mound was LHP/1B Ian Weaver (Lincoln County, TN), who went 1.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB & 2 K's while touching 80 mph with his fastball.

Alabama 14U (2)

After a 3-0 week in pool play and earning the No. 4 overall seed in bracket play, Alabama (2) matched up with Georgia (2) in the nightcap with a spot in the quarterfinals on the line. Georgia (2), however, had a big 1st inning with six runs and never looked back in the contest en route to an 11-1 victory.

Alabama (2) wasn't able to get much going offensively in the contest with only two hits throughout four innings of play. C/RHP Davis Ruston (Shelby County) continued to swing a hot bat on the week, going 1-for-1 with a walk. C Hudson Robbins (Saraland) also added a hit and walked in his other at-bat.

RHP/3B Brayden Dockery (Helena) was a bright spot on the mound working the final two innings. Working in the low-80's on the mound, Dockery racked up three strikeouts while not allowing a hit in his outing.
