MS/AL Border Battle: Statistical Leaders


Matt Miller
State Director

Our second annual Mississippi/Alabama Border Battle was held at Northeast Mississippi Community Complex on October 9-10, 2021. The venue was perfect, the weather was great and the talent on the field was equally impressive as several of the top players in the 2022 through 2025 classes from each state battled for state bragging rights.

Mississippi claimed this years Battle with a 4-3-1 record after falling to Alabama 5-3 last year. 

Before the games began all position players went through a pro-style workout consisting of running the 60 yard dash, on-field batting practice utilizing both Trackman and Blast data and a defensive workout. Pitchers also received data from Trackman during their outing on the mound during gameplay. Numerous players from Mississippi put up impressive numbers and below are the top performers for the different categories from the event.
