2023 Top Prospect Games: Statistical Analysis


Brett Thorney
State Scouting Director

Yesterday, PBR Arizona had a chance to kick off its summer season with its annual Top Prospect Games. This invite only event is held after the high school season each year and gives us an opportunity to get an update on some of the top players in the 2023 class while seeing them compete side by side in a showcase plus live game format. This event features some of the top prospects in the class from all around the state of Arizona. This has become a popular event as scouts build their watch lists for the upcoming summer & fall seasons. It also helps us evaluate new & current prospects as we start to build more content for exposure. Another big purpose of this event is to help us select players for Team Arizona that will go compete at PBR Future games at the end of July

The PBR Future Games is one of Prep Baseball Report's most premier events and is currently the top event in the country for uncommitted prospects. In a typical year with scouts being able to be in attendance, it's a huge draw with state directors picking the top 20 uncommitted prospects in their state to compete in a showcase plus live game format. We are excited to welcome scouts back to event where there were over 300+ in attendance in 2019. We're also excited for the next couple weeks where we will finish building out the rest of Team Arizona. There will surly be some quality players selected from yesterdays event. 

The event at Cactus Shadows included 60 players including 20 pitchers that participated in a pro-style workout followed by game play with two 7-inning games. As always, we gathered loads of valuable information on players that will live in player profiles.

Today, we will be highlighting some of the top statistical performers from the event:
