Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the OK Future Games Trials at Oklahoma State University  on Sunday, August 20th. This event hosted 35 players in the 2020 and 2021 grad classes for a pro showcase followed by games. The Oklahoma State and the PBR staff were on hand to scout and evaluate the talented group. College recruiters will have a list of new names for their ScoutPlus subscription, as many talented played players showed their skills.

All of the video, stats, and pictures from the event have been posted on each individual player's profiles. We will start the in-depth analysis of the event today with a look at the middle infielders. Though many of the athletes today are two-way players, they will be cover here only as position players. Each player's full profile can be viewed by clicking on their picture. All exit velos taken from a tee. All at bats started with a 1-1 count.
