Future Games Preview: Team Carolina INF (NC)


Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR of NC

The PBR Future Games has quickly become the top recruiting stop for college coaches across the country.  While the situation in 2020 will not allow coaches to be in attendance, there is still plenty of attention heading to LakePoint, in Emerson, GA, to see the best of the best.  The PBR Future Games feature the top uncommitted, underclass players in the country, all in one spot. 

Beginning Saturday August 1st, Team Carolina, made up of NC and SC underclass players, will begin their journey through the Future Games.  Saturday is a workout day with position players going through a full pro-style workout.  Sunday and Monday will feature live game play with Team Carolina taking on Team Florida, Team Mid-Atlantic, and Team Georgia.

We begin our previews of Team Carolina by taking a look at some of the infielders from NC that will be looking to make waves this week.  A mix of athleticism and power, this group should be strong defensively and in the box.

Seth Christmas SS / 3B / Hopewell, NC / 2022

Athletic with a compact swing that tends to find the barrel a lot.  Chance to develop into a top tier hitter that will have the chance to stick in the middle of the field.  Has looked comfortable at 3B as a defender as well.
