By Aaron Wilson
PBR Michigan Assistant Scouting Director

On July 30th through August 1st, PBR Michigan will take a select team of players in the Classes of 2017 and 2018 to represent Michigan at the PBR Future Games in Indianapolis at Grand Park.

Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, 100+ colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the country. Only players who have a legitimate shot at being a Division I recruit and who have an interest in the possibility of making a verbal commitment during their sophomore or junior seasons have been considered.

Luke McGuireThoughts on being selected to play at the Future Games and represent the state of Michigan: "Being selected to the Futures Games is one of my biggest accomplishments and was my goal going into this year of baseball. Being able to represent my state with some of the best players in it is quite the honor and I thank PBR for the invitation and all they do for recruiting."
