Gulf Coast Open + Rising Stars ID: Event Preview
July 7, 2023
For most in the baseball world the summer schedule is as hectic as it gets. From scouts to coaches to players, everyone is traveling the country looking for the best experiences possible and many are trying to navigate the landscape to put themselves in the best possible situation to #BeSeen.
At Prep Baseball Report our scouts are spending their time just as you are, chasing the best baseball they can find all while making it easier for the player to put his best foot forward in the recruiting process. Our Summer Tour of open showcases takes the approach of making it easier for the player to find a local event, open to all grad classes and skill levels, and providing the opportunity to get in front of our scouts during the hectic schedule of summer baseball, keeping their PBR Profile as current as possible.
This event will also begin the identification process for some of the biggest events on the 2023 calendar such as the Preseason All-State, Top Prospect Games, and the 2023 PBR Future Games.
Our Gulf Coast Open is slated for Tuesday, July 11 at Mississippi Gulf Coast CC. Grad years 2024-2027 from FL, MS, LA, and other surrounding states are invited to attend.
All highlights from the Gulf Coast Open will be promoted on PrepBaseballReport.com. The Prep Baseball Report is subscribed to by nearly 1000 colleges and pro scouts across the country. All results will be posted on the site; along with players’ highlights.
The Prep Baseball Report’s goal is to help student-athletes achieve their dreams of playing baseball at the next level. If you want to take advantage of this opportunity, please get your registration in as soon as possible.
