MS Diamond Notes: Week 4

PBR Mississippi Staff

The Mississippi Diamond Notes is a new feature for 2023 that will focus on highlighting some top performances across the state based on nominations from high school coaches. We will highlight those positions players, pitchers and two-way players every Tuesday of the high school season that are deserving to be highlighted based on their performance. 

Check out our scout blog HERE for games our staff was able to get out and see last week.
