This week, Prep Baseball Report's premier summer underclass event will get underway, for the first time taking place at LakePoint in Georgia. The Future Games features over 400 of the top uncommitted 2021 and 2022 players from across the country at one place and is one of the most heavily scouted events of the year, with all 30 MLB clubs represented and well over 160 college coaches coming each year to follow four days of action.

Players take part in a workout day followed by three days of games. Teams are selected regionally by PBR's local scouting staffs, with Team Mid-Atlantic being made up of the top players from Maryland, Delaware, DC, and Virginia.
