Prep Baseball Report

Junior Sunbelt 2016 Roster

By John Cackowski
State Director

On Thursday 1/15/15 at the Colorado Dugout Club Coaching Clinic PBR Colorado and the Colorado Dugout Club announced an exciting partnership. PBR Colorado will be the new sponsor of the Junior Sunbelt Classic Team. Last year’s talent at the Sunbelt Classic was incredible; we hope to continue that tradition with talented players such as yourself. Most of the top players on the Junior Sunbelt team last year are now ranked among the top in their respective class. The tryout is exclusively for the 2017 class and select 2018 players.

This year, not only will players receive high-level exposure if you make the team, but all players at the tryout will be scouted, video-taped, and have a profile that will hosted on, which is subscribed to by more than 500 colleges and pro scouts across the country. Furthermore, the top players will be listed in our statewide player rankings. Players will also have an online profile created with their verified statistics.

This nationally recognized tournament began in 1977.  Over the years players like Randy Johnson, Troy Aikman, and Johnny Damon have played in the Sunbelt.  Teams from Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Arizona, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Canada now participate.  This will be one of the most competitive 10 games you have played as a high school baseball player.  Aside from baseball, players get to live with host families for 1 week which will be a tremendous experience.  Scouts from around the country representing all levels of colleges and professional teams will be present to evaluate the talent heavy tournament.

The Colorado Dugout Club Staff, and select MLB scouts were in charge of picking and naming the team. PBR Colorado will be providing a full analysis of all players who participated in the event and that will be posted on the site by position this week.

Congratulations to the following players who made the 2016 Junior Sunbelt Classic Team. For any questions about process before and after please contact Alan Dyer at:
