This year's roster is already shaping up nicely, just like in years past.

SS/RHP Shea Glotzbach (Lemont, 2025) impressed our staff this spring, with our staff notching him as an upside uncommitted 2025 follow. Glotzbach offers a 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame with long, loose levers and a high waist. On the mound, the right-handed pitcher has a stretch-only delivery that he repeats well and shows the makings of a three-pitch mix that features a fastball up to 87 mph, an 11/5 curveball, and a changeup. At the plate, the left-handed hitter has a quiet presence with loose, easy hands and present levers. Our staff now looks forward to watching the uncommitted rising senior in a controlled showcase setting.

3B/1B Jonathan Osornio (Mt. Carmel, 2026), will offer a solid profile for our staff to evaluate. In past events, the 6-foot, 175-pound right-handed hitter has showcased a narrow and quiet setup with a short stride. Osornio swings with intent and creates solid bat speed, which has translated into reported exit velocities at up to 97 mph. On the dirt, the Mt. Carmel athlete offers fluid, easy footwork, and a compact 3/4 arm action.

OF/1B Wade Ozment (Crystal Lake Central, 2027) is the No. 27 ranked rising sophomore in the state and now offers our staff a new look at his developing 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame. Ozment swings a whippy right-handed bat with intent, staying through the zone and generating power. Defensively, the outfielder has steady hands with a two-hand gather and an arm up to 81 mph in prior events.

Perusing the event roster, we’re set to meet a majority of players who’ve not yet attended a PBR showcase, and we’re eager to add more names to our follow lists.


Because of the high number of prospects set to attend Tuesday’s event, it is imperative that you read our showcase itinerary below, which will allow our staff to swiftly and efficiently educate and evaluate the players set to attend.

Additionally, in an effort to continue and develop contactless check-in strategies, upon arrival, players will scan a QR Code with their smart phone camera that will lead them to a Google Form. On that Form, players will enter their name (matching the spelling on their PBR profile) and hit submit. Upon submission, players will be prompted to click a link that will direct them to their jersey color and number, located next to their registered name.


Please bring snacks and drinks as events can run long, especially depending on your position.


  • All Players: 8:45 am
