Joe Dattoli
West Coast Director of Operations

The high school baseball season in Arizona is coming up quickly with many prospects around the state gearing up for their seasons. This past weekend, PBR Arizona had a chance to hold its annual Preseason All-State, which is one of the biggest events of the year in Arizona. The two-day invite only event features some of the top prospects from around the state coming from the 2021-2025 grad classes. The event was broadcasted live in order for coaches, scouts and fans to see the action all over the country. This invite only event continues to be a huge identifier of prospects in Arizona and to get quality prospect updates on players we have seen in the past. This event has also played a big role on which prospects will secure their invitation to represent Team Arizona at the PBR Future Games later in the summer.

PBR Arizona held its Upperclass part of the Preseason All-State Games on Saturday, January 30th at Arcadia Ridge High School in Phoenix, AZ. This event featured over 65 prospects from the 2021-2022 grad classes from all across the state of Arizona with a few players trickling in from border states and even Hawaii. This event has become a must attend event as players go into their high school seasons. 

Today, we begin our post event coverage by taking a look at the top performers in some key statistical categories. Be sure to stay tuned over the next few weeks for more post-event coverage.
