TN Diamond Notes: Week 3

PBR Tennessee Staff

The Tennessee Diamond Notes is a 2023 content piece that will focus on highlighting some top performances across the state based on nominations from high school coaches. We will highlight those positions players, pitchers and two-way players every Tuesday of the high school season that are deserving to be highlighted based on their performance. 

Check out our scout blog HERE for games our staff was able to get out and see last week.
