Kentucky Preseason All-State Showcase: Saturday, Feb. 9 Top Statistical Performers


Chris Fuller
Kentucky Director of Scouting

The Preseason All-State Showcase for Class of 2021-2022 players took place at Champions  Baseball Academy in Nicholasville on Saturday, February 9 and provided more than 90 freshmen and sophomores the opportunity to work out in front of the PBR staff and scouts in attendance. While there were some players attending their first PBR event, there were also many who had attended previous events that showed big gains as they continue their development. The event was loaded with talent as players prepare for the upcoming high school season.

We are in the process of editing videos to complete each player’s profile from the event.

The following is a look at the top statistical performers from the event.
