On Saturday, February 10th, the PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase will add to our pro coverage and give scouts the first look of the new year into the 2018 draft class along with select 2019 and 2020 grads

The Super 60, held in Chicago at the beginning of February, has become one of the more well attended pro showcases on the circuit, simply due to the caliber of players in attendance. We have seen more than 100 professional scouts year after year at the Super 60. Similarly, the ProCase will bring draft potential candidates from our area into one location to showcase their abilities in front of the professional scouting community. 

The event will be held in Henrico, VA at the TSI Training Center, which includes a full sized infield that will allow for open hitting and plenty of room for defensive evaluations.

Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state. Now, more than 850 colleges and pro scouts subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.  We take great pride in providing the most thorough and comprehensive high school baseball coverage in each state.

We continue our breakdown of the talent who will be in attendance.
