Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the second annual OK Preseason All-State Showcase this past Sunday at the World Baseball Outreach indoor facility in Tulsa, OK. This invite only event featured 90 of the top players from every class in Oklahoma. Each player participated in a pro style showcase to show their skills and record measurables in front of multiple colleges along with the PBR staff.

This was easily the most talent packed event in PBR OK history with 16 players posting 90+ exit velo, 16 players that were 85+ on the mound, 10 sub 7.00 60s, 9 catchers under 2.0, a 90 across the INF, and a 100 from the OF. 

In the coming weeks, PBR OK will write an in-depth scouting report on each player at the event grouped by position and age. Today, we look at the corner infielders from the 2021 and 2020 class'. Though many of them are talented two-way players, they will be cover here only as position plays with pitching analysis found here
