Prep Baseball Report Kansas

On Wednesday, August 6, 2014 Prep Baseball Report Kansas hosted the Class of 2015 Games at Trusler Sports Complex in Emporia, Kansas, an event for uncommitted seniors-to-be.  Over the next several weeks we will be updating player profiles, posting videos, feature stories and scouting reports from this event.  For now, we take a look at the measurable stats from the event - times and velocities.

We checked home-to-first base times during pre-game batting practice, however some players improved their times during game action - we use each player’s best time on the day.
