By: Eliott Wilk
Midwest Operations Director

On Sunday, February 11th, Prep Baseball Kansas made our annual trip to the Mac N Seitz Indoor Facility in Kansas City, MO, to host the MOKAN Preseason All-State. This invite-only event featured a multitude of the state's top prospects, representing Kansas and  Missouri's 2024-to-2027 classes, with over 130 players set to attend.

All of our events offer players the opportunity to update their recruiting resume and showcase their talents in front of our staff. We also use these events as identifiers for future invite-only events, like the Preseason All-State, our summer Top Prospect Games, and the prestigious Prep Baseball Future Games that takes place at the tail end of the summer.
