Team Pennsylvania Roster Finalized

By Greg Williams
PA Director of Scouting

The finalized roster the 2nd edition of Team Pennsylvania has been released. Team PA will compete in the Prep Baseball Report Midwest Future Games August 2-4 at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. Pennsylvania sent its first set of prospects to the 2012 Midwest Future Games just a few short months after Prep Baseball Report began operations in the state. The 2012 version of Team Pennsylvania had a respectable showing at the event on the campus of the University of Illinois with LHP/1B Brendan McKay (Blackhawk HS, Class of 2014) impressing as a potential two-way player at the next level. McKay went on to be named the 2013 Gatorade Player of the Year in Pennsylvania as a junior. Team PA played to a tie with Michigan (5-5) and Missouri (3-3), prior to giving up some late inning runs in a 9-3 loss to Illinois.

With a full year's time to evaluate the talent a state the size of Pennsylvania has to offer, the PBR Pennsylvania staff of scouts has put together what it feels is a very talented roster for this summer's event that will feature eight teams of top prospects representing eight states in the PBR coverage area (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin).

This years Team PA roster boasts 14 ranked players from the Class of 2015 and the No. 3 ranked player in Pennsylvania's Class of 2016. Following is an initial look at the Team Pennsylvania roster with an in depth look at each player on the roster to follow in the coming weeks.
