Underclass Trials: Infielder Analysis


By Wisconsin Staff

The Wisconsin Underclass Trials is one of the most important events on our summer circuit, as it precludes a number of invite-only events, and the information gathered at this showcase is often helpful when determining where invitations need to be forwarded. The event was held on June 19 and rain moved us from The Rock Sports Complex to Hitters Baseball Academy in Caledonia, Wis.

There were over 100 prospects from the 2021, 2022, and 2023 graduating classes, representing all corners of Wisconsin.

We covered the top catchers at the event on Monday, and today is reserved for the day’s best infielders.
