St. Louis Preseason ID: Data Dive


By: Eliott Wilk
Midwest Operations Director

On Monday, February 19th, the PBR Missouri staff traveled to the Bud Dome in St. Louis, MO, to host the St. Louis Preseason ID. This event, in its second year, was open to all 2024-to-2027 with 50+ prospects in attendance.

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 take place at the tail end of the summer.

Shortly after the event, our staff posted several of the day's stat leaders within our traditional 'Stat Story', which you can find HERE

Today, with the help of our partners at TrackMan, Blast, and Swift, we're highlighting more data standouts collected at this event. You'll find those leaders below.
