Prep Baseball Report Iowa & Minnesota

The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for sophomore prospects and select freshmen prospects. This year well over 110 colleges from all over the country were in attendance. The Prep Baseball Report services are subscribed by more than 400 colleges and pro scouts.

Our series highlights the players who attended the PBR Future Games in Indiana. We have included the players scouting report, statistics, and video of their performance at the event.

The 2015 event was the first opportunity for players in Iowa and Minnesota to attend the PBR Future Games. Many of the player's recruiting interest has exploded since the event; two players have already made a verbal commitment to a college; and many more with multiple scholarship offers on the table.
