On Feb. 24th, the Prep Baseball Illinois staff hosted the Preseason All-State, Upperclass at The MAX in McCook, Ill. Over 130 players participated in a pro-style workout, gathering unrivaled access to data through our state-of-the-art tech partners, as well as in-depth scouting analysis from our Prep Baseball Illinois staff.

From the mound, we saw over 30 prospects record a fastball of 87 mph or higher, while positionally, 15 prospects had a run time under 7.00 seconds, and over 40 hitters recorded a max exit velocity of 95 mph or higher.
