PBR Kansas strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state.  

As we close the door on 2021 and head into 2022, PBR KS takes a look at the top 10 most viewed profiles of the year. We are able to drill down into the data and track the number of reads thanks to Google Analytics. As we usually see, the list is dominated by some of the top performers and players who have made commitments this year. 

Checking in at number 2 on the most viewed profiles list is the 2021 grad Ben Kudrna.  After putting together a big Spring in 2021, Kudrna heard his name called in the 2nd round of the 2021 MLB Draft and being the 43rd overall selection by the hometown Kansas City Royals.  Kudrna has the prototypical size and power arm arsenal scouts love and look for him to play a big role in the Royals farm system for the years to come.
