By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report will host the 19th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We started our our march toward the Super 60 earlier this year, by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school years and beyond.

Scouting Report

2/03/21

Simon has long been known for his stellar defense up the middle of the field, but the Louisiana State recruit has made some physical gains this offseason that could prove to be beneficial at this weekend's Super 60. He has gained 20 pounds since last season and it showed in a scrimmage last weekend when he hit a loud home run to his pull side. He has also been 88-91 with his fastball and brings big-game experience to the mound.
