With 2020 finally in the rear view we turn our attention to what we all hope will be an opportunity this spring for all players to return to playing high school baseball. Today we begin our annual series of stories entitled "Spring Forward" where we highlight some of the top players, programs, and conferences across a variety of categories for the upcoming 2021 season. 

Our Spring Forward series begins with a look at some of the fastest and most electric prospects to catch play in 2021. Whether their ability to save runs defensively or get on base and make things happen, these prospects will play a key role in their team's success in 2021. Be sure to follow our Spring Forward series as we continue to highlight some of the top players, programs, and conferences through a variety of categories in the weeks to come.
