Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted its first event of the summer at beautiful L.Dale Mitchell Stadium on the campus of OU. This event hosted nearly 80 of the top 2020 and 2019 graduates from around the state for a pro showcase followed by games. These talented underclassmen showed their skills in front of coaches from every level of college baseball as well as the PBR OK staff. 

All of the video, stats, and pictures from the event have been posted on each individual player's profiles. Over the next week and a half, we will be taking an in-depth look at each player from the event position by position.Though a few of these 2020 grads listed below are two-way players, they will be covered here as corner infielders. Each player's full profile can be viewed by clicking on their picture. All exit velo's were taken from a tee and all the at bats in the game started with a 1-1 count.
