Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the OK Fall Top Prospects Games at beautiful Failing Field on the campus of Norther Oklahoma College at Enid. This invite only event featured over 85 of the top players from every class in Oklahoma. Each player participated in a pro style showcase to get all the measurables, followed by games where the PBR staff and multiple colleges had the chance to watch them in game situations.    

Today we look at the underclass middle infielders from the event. Though many of them are skilled two-way players, they will be covered here as middle infielders only, having already been covered as pitchers. All batters started with 1-1 counts and all exit velos were taken from a tee.
