CYPRESS, TX- On January 18th, our PBR Texas staff hosted the Houston Preseason ID event to a much anticipated showcase and trials on the confines of Schiel Rd Sports Complex. The event featured a talented group of players from the 2021-2024 classes. We started our positional analysis last week with the catchers and continued with the infielders yesterday, and today we continue with a full breakdown and analysis of every outfielder in attendance.
