2023 Rewind: Top Catcher Velocities & Pop Times


Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations & Area Scout

As we are beginning to wrap up 2023 and gear up for the 2024 Preseason, our Prep Baseball Mississippi Staff has decided to gather all the numbers and data from our successful event schedule in 2023 and compile a series of leaderboards.

All of the data for the following leaderboard is based on the information gathered from Prep Baseball Mississippi events such as, Preseason ID's, Preseason All-State, Rising Stars, Summer Open events, Invite-Only events and our Scout Days.

*Please note that there are out of state players who have attended Mississippi events such as the AL/MS Border Battle, Mid-South Preseason ID and more that will appear on different leaderboards.*
