John Cackowski
Director of Scouting


Prep Baseball Report’s Team Colorado Scout Day took place Saturday October 28th at Bardo's Diamond Facility. This was the first year for this event. Some strong talent was on display with members of the 2019-2023 classes participating in the event. Prospects came together in a pro-style workout to strut their stuff in front of the PBR scouting staff. Below are some looks at the top players who came out of the event.
