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 as well as the 6 players who will be invited to the 2021 PBR Future Games.
