2019 PBR Michigan Showcase Recap: All-Showcase Top Performers

Prep Baseball Report events are designed to give players the maximum exposure needed to advance to the next level. In 2019, not only did they receive high-level exposure from college coaches at the event, but all players at events were videotaped, with the edited performance being posted onto the website with the opportunity to be seen by more than 800 colleges and pro teams who subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.

In 2019, PBR Michigan hosted 24 showcases throughout the year. This included nine Scout Days, which provided the top summer organizations in the state the ability to show what their program has to offer College/MLB organizations. Below you will find the "best of the best" for the year in numerous categories, with the top 10 being highlighted.

Looking ahead to 2020, we at PBR Michigan look forward to bringing you comprehensive year-round coverage throughout the state and continue to be the No. 1 resource for amateur baseball in the state thanks to our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, multimedia platforms and more. With more than 800 colleges and pro teams subscribed to Prep Baseball Report services, we look to continue to help the prospect reach their dreams of playing at the next level.
