Prep Baseball Colorado Staff


The Prep Baseball staff aims to offer a plethora of showcase options thoughout the calendar year which includes; Preseason IDs, Summer & Fall IDs, Preseason All-State, Rising Stars, Colorado State Games, Scout Days, and this year's inaugural Summer Kickoff event. Each of these events help us identify and crosscheck players leading into some of our national showcases and games such as the Future Games, Junior Future Games, Super 60s, All-American Games, and the newly Super Sophomore and 17U Future Games. 

Why Should I Start Attending Showcases?

One of the most common questions we receive is when should I start attending showcases and why is it important to attend at a young age? We have some answers for you. 

Build A History of Your Progress

Although college coaches can't contact you until August of your Junior year, coaches will be tracking prospects at a young age. 

One of the most important aspects of the evaluation of a prospect is how they progress each year. By attending as a young prospect, you can start building your history so coaches can see the progress you make. 

Where Do You Rank?

Prep Baseball event deliverables create a clear visualization and pathway to prospect development.

Performance tiers, rankings, leaderboards, videos and more will show how you stack up amongst your peers in your same graduating class.

Prep Baseball begins ranking players during their freshman year, and will continue to expand those rankings multiple times a year.

The next edition of the Prep Baseball Future Games will return to LakePoint Sports in Emerson, Ga., from Wednesday, July 24 through Sunday, July 28. Since the event’s inception in 2011, the Prep Baseball Future Games has evolved into the biggest college scouting event in the country, with more than 375 college coaches in attendance each of the last two years. The bedrock of the event, the 16U division returns, and we will again feature a 14U Junior Future Games division.

And, beginning in 2024, there will also be the inclusion of a 17U division for the first time ever. The addition of a 17U division will give college and pro scouts alike a one-stop-shop place to meet all their recruiting needs, as every player at the event is a high-level uncommitted prospect

“With the new recruiting rules, in addition to the growing impact of the transfer portal, more and more rising seniors are now uncommitted,” said Sean Duncan, Prep Baseball Report President. “Now colleges can see the best uncommitted players at the 16U, 17U levels while earmarking high-end eighth-graders for the future. Everything is on campus at LakePoint, so it’s super convenient for them to maximize their time and efforts.

“Ultimately, we’re really excited about this addition because it will attract all levels of college coaches.”

This premier scouting event has become the biggest recruiting event of the year, designed to bring together the country’s best uncommitted talent to perform in one centralized location. The four-day event begins in a controlled showcase environment that transitions into live gameplay, conducted throughout at LakePoint Sports complex, which boasts eight Major League-sized fields with brand new state-of-the-art synthetic turf.

The collection of talent attracts college coaches and recruiting coordinators from coast to coast – the 2023 Prep Baseball Future Games hosted 375 college coaches. This offers young prospects unparalleled visibility and an opportunity to make a mark on the college baseball scene.

Last year also saw a significant change to the NCAA recruiting rules, designed to slow down the recruitment process to ensure a more holistic evaluation of potential student-athletes. As a result, the 16U division at the Future Games projects to be more important than ever as it coincides with the eve on which coaches can begin communicating with this grad class.

Another natural byproduct of these changes is the increase in the amount of highly skilled incoming seniors who will still be uncommitted at the end of their final summer as high school-aged players. This motivated Prep Baseball to create a 17U division at the Future Games for the first time.

More details will come in the near future that further outline how the 17U division will be structured. Regarding the 14U and 16U divisions, they will be formatted similarly to how they’ve been organized in years past.

  • Tuesday, July 23: Check-in for all players
  • Wednesday, July 24: Showcase/workout day for all players
  • Thursday-Saturday, July 25-27: Live gameplay across all divisions
  • Saturday, July 27: 16U and 17U games conclude; 14U elimination bracket play begins
  • Sunday, July 28: 14U bracket play concludes

Prep Baseball’s partners at Mizuno will continue to provide Future Games prospects with high-quality gear throughout the four-day event. Additionally, the players participating in the event will receive the full Prep Baseball Tech Package, which includes TrackMan hitting and pitching metrics, Blast Motion swing data and analysis, athletic measurements, as well as vision testing analysis administered by Vizual Edge.
