Prep Baseball Iowa strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. Prep Baseball is the number one resource for high school baseball in each state that we cover through various events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work together, creating each state's most potent high school baseball promotion source. While other organizations take a national approach, our goal is to become the authoritative voice on the ground level of each state.

”Looking to return to state 4-5 years and all have experienced a winning culture. Depth continues to be the number one strength. Depth in pitching and with our position players should help us to navigate a good schedule. Players play with high IQ and bring a work ethic with them everyday!” - BRIAN MITCHELL, Head Coach
