The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for sophomore and select freshmen prospects. This year well over 150 colleges from all over the country were in attendance. The Prep Baseball Report services are subscribed by more than 700 colleges and pro scouts.
Our series highlights the players who attended the PBR Future Games in Indiana. We have included the players scouting report, statistics, video of their performance, and their Recruiting Radar segment to see where each player is at in the recruiting process.
The 2016 event was the first opportunity for players in Iowa, Minnesota and Nebraska to attend the PBR Future Games and perform as a group. Many of the player's recruiting interest has exploded since the event; with many of them having multiple scholarship offers on the table.
