The 2021 PBR Future Games kicks off July 28th at LakePoint Sports in Georgia. The event will feature 25 of the top uncommitted 2023 and 2024 players throughout the state of Florida competing against some of the top uncommitted players throughout the country. This event has brought over 300 college coaches in attendance each year and we expect the same this year.

This week, we will start to unveil our 2021 Team Florida position by position. Today, we will cover the corner infielders.
