Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the OK Winter Showcase at the state of the art World Baseball Outreach indoor facility in Tulsa, OK. This invite only event featured 40 of the top players from every class in Oklahoma. Each player participated in a pro style showcase to get all the measurables where the PBR staff and multiple colleges and pro scouts had the chance to watch them live.    

Today we look at the underclass pitchers from the event. Though many of them are skilled two-way players, they will be covered here as pitchers only, with other positional analysis to come later.
