The Rewind: A Look Back at November 2017


Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting


The month of November is not typically a hot bed of amateur baseball.  Most players have completed their fall work and most high schools enter into a dead period.  The players may be in the weight room and working on their speed and conditioning.  Even with the players slowing their tempo, Prep Baseball Report continues to work to be your No. 1 source for amateur baseball in North Carolina and across the country. 

We take a quick look back at November.  Rankings were updated for the Overall and State levels.  Player profiles are continually updated as PBR’s team of scouts work to scour the state and country.  Stories on recruiting, recruits, the draft, and other news and notes continue to be published. 

In this special Rewind, we look at some of the top profiles, stories, and links from November.  Another month that saw more than a million hits to the PBR site also featured more than 120,000 profile views from college coaches, pro scouts, and high school baseball fans.
