Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the third annual OK Fall Underclass Games on Sunday, September 9th, at the beautiful J.L. Johnson Stadium on the campus on Oral Roberts University. The event showcased a sold out 73 player roster from the 2022-2020 grad classes. Each position player went through a pro-style workout and played in a scrimmage where pitchers threw. 

Today, we take an in-depth at the 14 middle infielders from the event. Though many of them are two-ways, they will be covered here today as middle infielders only with pitching analysis already on their profiles.  All counts started at 1-1.
