PBR Louisiana Game of the Week (Week 1)

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

That time of the year is here again and we couldn't be more excited!  High school baseball, across Louisiana, is kicking off today, which means that we are bringing back our Game of the Week segment.  We have combed through schedules, over the past couple of weeks, and have decided to give high school baseball fans two games for Week 1!  First, we will head over to St. Paul's to see the Wolves take on Catholic BR.  The Bears won last year's Week 1 game against the Wolves, in extra innings, by one run.  After that, we will head on over to Mandeville HS, to see the Skippers take on Central BR.  Mandeville just missed the LHSAA Class 5A playoffs last spring and return a ton of young talent and the Wildcats are one of the early favorites in Class 5A, led by a deep starting pitching staff.  Below, we take a look at the matchups and some of the players to watch for tonight.  Be sure to follow us, on all of our social media platforms, for coverage of opening day 2022!
