Prep Baseball Report Minnesota

On June 15th and 16th, 2020; PBR Minnesota is headed to Minnetonka High School to host one of the biggest events of the year; the PBR MN Top Prospect. This invite-only event, exclusive to 2021 grads, will spotlight one of the more deeper classes the state of Minnesota and surrounding region has seen in years- with a plethora of higher end un-committed prospects ready to shine. 

CLICK HERE for current roster of event.

Over 300 players have made college commits who participated in this event over the last four years and this year’s roster looks to add exponentially to that total once the recruitment of the 2021 class is complete.

Follow along throughout the event on both Twitter (@PBRMinnesota) and Instagram (PBRMinnesota) as we will be updating you live with all the day's action.

This year’s roster is loaded with talent across the board. 80 players, who are currently listed in the PBR MN Top 130 rankings for the 2021 class, will be in attendance. Uncommitted participating players currently ranked in the Top 20 are #6 Joe Longo (Holy Angels), #11 ranked and 2019 Future Games participant Kade Peloquin (Stillwater), 2-time Future Games attendee RHP Gavin Zurn (Stillwater) who is currently #15 on the list, #16 Nicholas Argento (Wayzata) an up-and-coming RHP in the class, and LHP Evan Esch (Mounds Park Academy) at #19 who is looking to build upon a break-out performance at our March Preseason event. A helium arm in attendance, RHP Adam Stanton (Eagan), is a player to watch for the class; and one of the better uncommitted prospects, SS Ben North (East Ridge), is a multi-sport athlete and former Future Games participant who should turn eyes as well.
