Prodigy Scout Day: Data Dive


By: Eliott Wilk
Midwest Operations Director

On Saturday, February 24th, the Prep Baseball Missouri staff traveled to Parkville, MO to host the Prodigy Scout Day. This event featured 25+ players representing the 2024-to-2027 classes from Missouri.

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.

We'll wrap up our coverage from this event today within this 'Data Dive'. Continue reading below to see which players in attendance showed well from a batted ball, pitch metric, and swing analytics perspective.
