Hattiesburg Open: Event + Roster Preview

Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations / Area Scout

The PBR Hattiesburg Open Showcase is set for Tuesday, June 6th at Southern Miss. This event is for college recruiters and MLB scouts to get at deeper look at  players in the 2024-2027 graduation classes.

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. 

The Summer Tour of open events also leads to identifying prospects for some of the summer’s biggest invite only events like Top Prospect, Future Games, State Games and more.

All highlights from the Hattiesburg 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.

This will also serve as an identifier for invitations to the Mississippi State Games, PBR Futures Games at Lakepoint Sports in Emerson, Georgia and other invite only events.
