Underclass Preseason All-State Showcase: Top Statistical Performers and Complete Stats


Chris Fuller
Kentucky Executive Director

The annual Underclass Preseason All-State Showcase took place at Champions Baseball Academy in Nicholasville and featured many of the top Class of 2024 and 2025 players the state has to offer in the premier underclass scouting event of the preseason. There were some big performances turned in, including players who made significant jumps from their prior event, and players we were seeing for the first time who left a good first impression.

We will be rolling out the content and featuring standout players from the event leading up to the high school season. For now, here is a look at the top statistical performers from the event in several different statistical categories.

NOTE: Some underclassmen attended the upperclass event on Sunday. Their stats will be included in that event.
