Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations & Area Scout

As we are beginning to wrap up 2023 and gear up for the 2024 Preseason, our Prep Baseball Tennessee Staff has decided to gather all the numbers and data from our successful event schedule in 2023 and compile a series of leaderboards.

All of the data for the following leaderboard is based on the information gathered from Prep Baseball Tennessee events such as, Preseason ID's, Preseason All-State, Rising Stars, Summer Open events, Invite-Only events and our Scout Days.
