Prep Baseball Report

Region X & XX Powers Clash

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

PBR Scouts were on the road watching Junior College action this past weekend.  On Saturday, Florence Darlington Tech (SC) hosted Harford CC (MD) and Catawba Valley CC (NC) for a 3 team round robin.  All three teams have aspirations of getting to their World Series.  Harford learned that they have an offense that will keep them in games with top teams.  FDTCC and CVCC each learned that adjustments will be needed as they look ahead to conference play, and ultimately, the post-season.

At Wake Tech CC (NC), Gaston College (NC) took their unbeaten record on the road for a double-header.  The 1st year program out of Gaston has made early noise and continued to roll this weekend.

Below we recap the entire weekend from both locations.  We also have scout blogs breaking down some of the players that popped with notes and video.
