FRESNO, CALIF. - We returned to Fresno to run the Central Valley Preseason ID for the third time, this time at Washington Union HS. Over half the players in the showcase were in the 2024 and 2025 classes, with some who have already shown up in our rankings in their respective classes. The event was a straight showcase with a 60, BP, defensive workout and scripted pitching session for the pitchers. TrackMan was active during BP and for the pitching session, while Blast Motion was also active for the hitting session.
