This Tuesday, April 9nd, the Prep Baseball Wisconsin team is hosting the Green Bay Rising Stars ID at Impact Sports Academy in De Pere, Wis. This event is tailored to prospects in the 2028 and 2029 classes and it is meant to educate players with what to expect about the overall landscape of playing at the next level while also allowing our staff to identify some up-and-coming talent.

We've been hosting this event for the past few years, and it's consistently provided us a look at prominent players who've later gone on to receive invitations to select events, like the Prep Baseball Junior Future Games.

Two years ago, our staff got our first look at RHP/OF Matthew Hietpas (Appleton North, 2026) who is cuurently the No. 18 ranked prospect in the state. He earned an invite to the Junior Future Games following his stellar performance at this same event in 2022, and he has continued to trend up since. OF Carson Hawley (Bay Port, 2026) is another name who earned a spot on Team Wisconsin after a quality showing in 2022, and he is currently inside of the top-20 in our Class of 2026 Rankings. One final name that earned a Junior Future Games invite was RHP Parker Lawson (Bay Port, 2026) who is a high upside arm in the state's sophomore class.


Because of the high number of prospects set to attend Tuesday's event, it is imperative that you read our adjusted showcase itinerary below, which will allow our staff to swiftly and efficiently educate and evaluate the players set to attend.

Additionally, in an effort to continue and develop contactless check-in strategies, upon arrival, players will scan a QR Code with their smart phone camera that will lead them to a Google Form. On that Form, players will enter their name (matching the spelling on their PBR profile) and hit submit. Upon submission, players will be prompted to click a link that will direct them to their jersey color and number, located next to their registered name.
