Brett Thorney
State Scouting Director

PBR Future Games is set for Aug 1st-3rd

Prep Baseball Report's one-of-a-kind event will feature the best uncommitted 2022 prospects and select 2023 prospects from our 40-plus state coverage area. The Future Games will take place on August 1st- 3rd at LakePoint in Cartersville, GA. 

The Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for Class of 2022 prospects and select 2023 prospects. Last year, more than 320 college coaches from all over the country were in attendance. The Prep Baseball Report services are subscribed by more than 800 colleges and pro scouts.

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 team will play three games. Day 1, all position players will be put through a showcase workout in which they will run 60s, take batting practice and be evaluated at their primary position. The following days players will compete in live game setting vs teams from other states.

'22 OF/LHP Alessandro Castro from Pusch Ridge Christian Academy joins Team Arizona for the 2020 PBR Future Games.

2022 OF/LHP Alessandro Castro (Pusch Ridge Christian Academy)- Castro attended our Top Prospect in the summer of 2019 where made an impression on our PBR Arizona staff. He once again stood out at the event in 2020 where he has continued to progress. At 6-foot 170-pounds, Castro has an athletic projectable body with room to add strength. His left-handed swing with repeatability gives him the ability to consistently barrel up the baseball. His power will continue to improve as he makes physical gains. In the OF, he shows athletic actions tracking down the ball with 87mph arm strength. He ran a 7.12 60-yard dash on the day with a sprained ankle. Castro also shows some two-way potential working his FB 80-83mph with more in the tank.  We are excited to have Castro on #TEAMARIZONA for the PBR Future Games.
