West Milwaukee Preseason I.D.: Position Player Analysis


By Wisconsin Staff

On Feb. 21, the PBR Wisconsin team hosted its second event of 2021, the West Milwaukee Preseason I.D., at STiKS Academy in Waukesha, Wis. This was an open event for all high school classes (2021-24), and gave our staff an ample look at the area's top players.

If you missed us in Waukesha, check out our showcase page to see when we’re in the neighborhood next. We also previously published some takeaways from this showcase in the week that followed, in the form of our Quick Hits story, a Statistical Analysis, and our TrackMan Files piece.

Today, we’re beginning to roll out scouting reports on each player in attendance, beginning with each of the event’s position players. Our staff also collaborated to rank the top-10 position players at the West Milwaukee I.D., which you can find directly below.
