Top Prospect Games: Outfielder Analysis


PBR Louisiana Staff

On June 15, 2022 we hosted the Top Prospect Games at M.L. Tigue Moore Field, home of the University of Louisiana Ragin Cajuns. The invite-only event featured some of the state's top uncommitted prospects from all high school classes. The day started out started out with players running the 60 yard dash and participating in defensive work, followed by batting practice, and we ended with two separate games. We were fortunate to hold this year's Top Prospect Games during an open recruiting period, as there were several college recruiters on hand to take look at each prospect.  Below, we take a look at the scouting reports from all infielders in attendance.
