PBR Maryland hosted its annual Preseason All-State Session II Showcase at the D-Bat Facility in Gaithersburg this past Saturday. Over 100 players from across the Old Line State, Delaware, Virginia, D.C., and Pennsylvania participated in a pro-style workout and threw bullpens in front of our PBR Maryland and Mid-Atlantic staff. Today, we begin our Superlatives series by analyzing top performers across a variety of categories.
