Prep Baseball Report's MN Preseason Underclass event took place on Saturday, March 19, 2016. The event was held at the Vadnais Sports Center in Vadnais Heights, MN. The event featured prospects from the 2018 and 2019 classes from Minnesota and South Dakota who showcased their talents in front of our scouting staff. Thank you to the players, parents, my staff and the Vadnais Sports Center for such a great event.

There were a number of great individual performances this year at the MN Preseason Underclass. Also of note is the fact that official high school practices don't start in Minnesota until today. Look for many of these player's numbers to continue to improve as they start playing and working into mid-season form.
