Diamond Notes: March 9 - 15, 2020

Prep Baseball Report

Each week throughout the high school season the staff at PBR will compile some of the top performances from across the state of North Carolina for Diamond Notes.  Many of these players have been considered for the PBR Player of the Week, but only one can win the award.  Diamond Notes allows the staff at PBR to recognize players that have played at a high level.

High school coaches, pro scouts, college coaches, and PBR's scouting staff are able to turn players in for recognition.  Each player is highlighted with notes from the last week, and from the entire season where warranted.

Players with links in their name have active PBR Profiles.  All PBR Profiles can be setup for free… Just follow this link >> FREE PBR PROFILE to make sure your info is linked when you are active in a PBR story.
