2023 PBR Hawaii State Games: Statistical Analysis

On August 19th, Prep Baseball Report staff travelled to Hawaii to officially launch PBR Hawaii with a pair of events, highlighted by the Hawaii State Games. The inaugural event took place at the home of the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, Les Murakami Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The event featured roughly 55 prospects from the 2024 - 2028 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth first look at the talent in Hawaii, as well gather significant data on each player.

Today we'll start our deep dive into the data collected at this event within this Statistical Analysis story. Over the next couple of days we’ll be diving deeper into all of the data we collected, rolling out even more coverage from the event.
