Today we continue our analysis by position of the players who participated in the Virginia/DC Top Prospect Games on June 27. Hosted by Liberty University, over 50 players from across the state performed in front of the PBR scouting staff as well as colleges from around the region. Last week, we began our breakdown with the catchers and the outfielders. We continued last week with the first and second portion of the infielders. Today, we take a look at the final portion of the infielders who took part in the event.

In the coming weeks we will continue our analysis with the pitchers.
