By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

2017 Fall Kickoff Showcase

PBR Pennsylvania will be hosting and scouting all games in the 2017 Fall Kickoff Showcase Tournament.  Throughout the event, PBR scouts will be covering games through our Scout Blog and Twitter.  Additionally there will be extensive articles on the Prep Baseball Report website previewing each participating team leading up to the tournament and highlighting game results along with top performers during and following the tournament.

The 2017 tournament will take place August 18th through 20th at Cooper Park on the campus of Millersville University.  All games will be on a drop dead 2 hour and 15 minute time limit with no new inning beginning after 2 hours.

With just over a week until the first pitch Team PBR rosters have been finalized.  Notable among the 29 prospects that will suit up with PBR on their chest are three prospects who recently represented Team Pennsylvania at the 2017 PBR Future Games.

2019 RHP Adam Grintz (Downingtown West) will suit up for Team PBR Red, while 2019 RHP/OF Nick Embleton (East Pennsboro) and 2019 RHP/3B Chic DeGaetano (Hazleton Area) will play for Team PBR White.
