PBR Florida Staff

The 2021 FL Preseason All-State was held Saturday, January 16th and Sunday, January 17th at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona Beach, FL. The event featured players from the 2021-2025 classes participating in a pro-style workout and two lives games in front of the PBR Florida Scouting Staff.

Players were broken down into two separate sessions with an Underclass (2023-2025) and Upperclass (2021-2022) session. If you missed the stats from Preseason All-State, they can be found in our Stats Story. We also broke down standouts with quick notes from the event in our Quick Hits article.

Starting this week, we will break down each of the players who attended the FL Preseason All-State with a complete scouting report on all of their tools. Today, we will start with players who will be receiving invites to represent Team Florida at the 2021 PBR Future and Junior Future Games. We have 5 players who will be invited to the Future Games, and 1 who will be invited to the Junior Future Games.
