In the winter of 2015 PBR Colorado released our first ever 2019 rankings which consisted of 40 players. In the past two years Prep Baseball Report Colorado has had the opportunity to cover amateur baseball like no other organization has ever been able to do before in the state of Colorado. Between scouting numerous games last spring and summer, and having a great opportunity to see more 2019 grads at the Preseason All-State in March, our Senior Games this summer, and also while scouting spring and summer games, including our first year of our Colorado Summer Scout League. We were able to move our 2019 ranking list to 200 players. Our next big 2019 rankings update will be posted after the fall baseball season.
