TOP PLAYERS IN ILLINOIS

We're inviting the top players in Illinois, spanning grad classes 2025-2028. Our mission is to bring the highest level talent in the state to one location for this two-day event. Rosters and teams will be composed of players from each grad class, setting the table to see who are, pound-for-pound, the state's top prospects.

TWO-DAY EVENT

All position players will showcase their talents in a pro-style workout in the morning of day one of the event, Tuesday, August 6. Following the workout, players will branch off into teams (selected by the Prep Baseball staff) and begin gameplay. The following day, we will finish up the event with two games for a total of three games for position players between the two days. Lineups, pitching rotations and rosters will be constructed by Prep Baseball Illinois staff. Players who register as Pitchers Only, may attend all games, or just arrive and pitch on the day and game in which they are slotted to throw.

RANTOUL FAMILY SPORTS COMPLEX

Opened in the spring of 2021, the Rantoul Family Sports Complex is an all-turf facility centrally located in the state, making it accessible for college coaches and recruiters to attend from across the region. At the Prep Baseball Illinois State Games, we'll be operating on the main high school quad (fields D1-D4) that surround a concession stand with an optimal scout tower situated above it, creating an environment for attending scouts and coaches to have their eyes on everything all at once. On Day One, the workout day, we'll be utilizing each of the fields to conduct an efficient pro-style workout in a showcase setting, and the complex will host live gameplay on Day Two.

Body Composition

Players' body composition will be officially measured using state-of-the-art, medical-grade technology that will provide precise insights into height, weight, skeletal muscle mass, BMI and more. Players will step on scales using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), a method for measuring body composition, including muscle mass, body fat, and total body water.

Our scales will then produce several metrics giving insight into the prospect’s body composition. Height will be measured using a digital stadiometer to get precise height measurements.

Grip Strength

Hitters' grip strength will be tested using a digital hydraulic dynamometer. Grip strength is an essential component to bat strength and controlling the barrel. Hitters will be put through a max strength test on both hands, shedding light on hand strength and potential power and bat control down the road.
