Ventura, Calif-

After seeing nearly 200 of the top players in the state of California across our SoCal Preseason All State Upper/Under class events and NorCal Preseason All State event we are taking a look a back at some of the top uncommitted players to know by position. 

Players at each event participated in a showcase-style workout with athletic testing, on field batting practice, defensive workouts, and bullpen sessions. During the workout portion of the event players had the opportunity to let their tools shine on video and build their database of metrics through Prep Baseball California's use of Swift Technologies, Blast Motion swing trackers, and Trackman technology for batted ball data and pitch tracking. While in our SoCal event the players competed in a controlled scrimmage with game play after the showcase workout.

We start by looking at the standout uncommitted catchers from the 3 events. The 10 names on this list (not in any order) represent some of the top names to know in the state of California.

 Brief overview of the players skills is included, but college coaches and fans can click link on their name to view their full Prep Baseball profile for more in-depth information on these backstops.
