2022 PBR Future Games (Louisiana Invite)

INVITE ONLY EVENT

This event is by invite-only. Please choose the option below to proceed:



This one-of-a-kind event will feature the best uncommitted Class of 2024 prospects and select 2025 prospects from our 40-plus state coverage area and Canada. The Future Games will take place from Wednesday, July 27 through Saturday, July 30 at LakePoint in Emerson, Ga. 

LakePoint’s elite baseball facilities include eight Major League-sized fields, which are surfaced entirely with synthetic turf provided by Shaw Sports Turf. This high-tech playing surface has been designed to accurately mimic the bounce of the ball off of real dirt and grass, and will allow fields to be playable immediately after rain.

The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for Class of 2024 prospects and select 2025 prospects. In years past, more than 330 college coaches from all over the country were in attendance.

Players will also receive maximum visibility from college coaches all over the country, in addition to being promoted through the Prep Baseball Report multimedia platforms. 

Each state's team will play three games. On Wednesday, the first day of the event, all position players will be put through a showcase workout in which they will run 60s, take batting practice and be evaluated defensively at their primary position.

Players participating in the PBR Future Games will receive the PBR Tech Package which includes TrackMan hitting and pitching metrics, Blast Motion swing metrics, PitchAI biomechanical pitching data, Vizual Edge vision testing analysis, as well as athletic measurements collected by our new partners at Swift Performance. 

PBR and Mizuno are partnered to provide players quality products at our youth and high school-aged events across the country – and the Future Games will be no different. Players will be given Mizuno baseball gear to wear during the four-day event.

ROSTERS

PBR state directors across the country used Preseason ID showcases over the winter to begin developing a list of players to consider inviting to participate at the 2022 Future Games. Each state will be using the spring's high school season and the early summer's events like the Top Prospect Games to further fill out the roster that will represent his state at LakePoint in late July. Rosters will update on this page as the season rolls on and we get closer to the 2022 Future Games.

SCOUTING, TECHNOLOGY AND DATA ANALYSIS IN ONE EVENT

 

PBR PROFILE

Every prospect's recruiting process starts and ends with the PBR Profile and our showcases revolve around that player profile. For first time attendees, a new PBR profile will be created, hosting all of your information, videos, head shot, metrics and more, making it one of your single most important tools in the recruiting process. Repeat showcase performances will continue to update your PBR profile, creating a history of prospect progress and ensuring the most up-to-date information is easily accessible throughout the fast-paced scouting community. These profiles are also searchable by a range of data points and metrics through our advanced search engine, making it a one stop shop for recruiters and scouts.

MIZUNO

All showcase prospects will receive a numbered PBR jersey sponsored by our partners at Mizuno. The Mizuno Tee is the all around tee shirt for every activity, made from lightweight textured fabric, and used to identify prospects throughout the showcase process.

STATS

PBR stats are the industry standard in the scouting community, carrying the highest credibility in actionable data. PBR profiles are the most reliable resources for prospect information due to this reason alone. Stats are collected using only the highest of standard equipment including Brower laser timers, Trackman and Stalker radars. All stats are hosted in player profiles accompanied by recently launched Performance Tiers that show where a prospect ranks among his peers.

VIDEO

All prospect performances will be professionally video taped, edited and uploaded into their PBR Profile. Videos will consist of multiple angles and record all aspects of the showcase including 60’s, live batting practice, and defensive performances. Videos are hosted in PBR Profiles and used for video spotlights, content, social media and more. Videos are accessible to all PBR+ subscribers.

SCOUTING REPORTS

The Prep Baseball Report is built at the hands of some of the most tenured and respected scouts in the industry. We pride ourselves on our level of prospect knowledge, most of which is gained through PBR events. Showcases are designed and engineered by state Scouting Directors with the goal of collecting as much information about a prospect as possible and relaying our findings to the public through data collection and scouting reports. 

POST-EVENT CONTENT

One of the many results of a PBR showcase is getting all the information collected to the public in a timely and digestible manner. Every showcase will be featured on the Prep Baseball Report website and social channels through various forms of post-event content, leaderboards, video spotlights and more. 

ACCOUNT DASHBOARD

In an effort to elevate the post-event experience for players who attend a PBR Showcase, the Account Dashboard is now your one stop shop to view all of your post-event deliverables, including your Video, TrackMan, Blast Data, Vizual Edge Score and more. Your Dashboard also gives you a window into upcoming events, calendar management and more.
