Team Pennsylvania Future Games Spotlight: Catchers





By Greg Williams

Pennsylvania Director of Scouting 

On July 30th through August 1st, PBR Pennsylvania will take a select team of players in the Classes of 2017 and 2018 to represent Pennsylvania at the PBR Future Games in Indianapolis at Grand Park.

Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, 100+ colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the country. Only players who have a legitimate shot at being a Division I recruit and who have an interest in the possibility of making a verbal commitment during their sophomore or junior seasons have been considered.
