PBR Iowa strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms.

We will look for our 8 seniors to lead us this summer. We return a number of guys with varsity experience both on the mound and at the plate. The strength of our team should be our depth on the mound as well as our ability to add pressure up and down our lineup to opposing defenses.” Head Coach Tony Stenberg
