Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the second annual Summer Underclass Games at the University of Oklahoma on Wednesday, May 30th. The event showcased a completely sold out event of 65 players from the 2020 and 2021 grad classes in two sessions. Each position player went through a pro-style workout followed by a game where pitchers threw live. 

This talented underclass event saw big numbers put up across the board. There were 17 60s under 7 seconds, nine exit velos 90 mph or better, five pitchers above 85 mph, four catchers pop 2.00 or better, and an infielder who hit 90 across the diamond.

Today, we will take an in-depth look at the corner infielders from the event. Though many are talented two way players, they will be covered here as position players with pitching comments already on their profiles.
