Prep Baseball Report is a national scouting organization that provides year round coverage of amateur baseball players. Their mission statement, according to their website (www.prepbaseballreport.com) reads: “The mission of the Prep Baseball Report is to scout and promote amateur baseball – high school, junior college and college – and, ultimately, help athletes achieve their dreams of playing baseball at the next level. With more than 150 scouts, we have the largest baseball scouting infrastructure across all levels of amateur baseball in the country.” It is no wonder why Prep Baseball Report is one of the most respected baseball scouting organizations and a must-read website for all things baseball.
To cover the entirety of amateur baseball here in the United States, Prep Baseball Report (PBR) splits into state and regional coverage. Here in Rhode Island, we fall under the PBR – New England section. You can find their website link at www.prepbaseballreport.com/new-england. There you can find prospect reports, tournament updates, showcase events, scout day information, and so much more. Player profiles with their position, school, year of graduation, and photos are found throughout the site. This is a fantastic site for players and their families to market themselves to prospective colleges, universities, even professional leagues. And, for the colleges, universities, and professional leagues PBR – New England supplies critical data so scouts can make informed decisions on signing.
Because I focus my writing on Rhode Island based players, a few recent lists really caught my eye. These snapshots of Top 10 Prospects are from the PBR – New England’s website and are the content and creation of PBR- New England. I wanted to acknowledge a few RI baseball players who made these very impressive lists.
The 2021 List did not include any Rhode Island players but here is the snapshot of that list.
Congratulations to all the players and their families for making this incredible Top 10 List of Prospects. Hugh accomplishment and the chance at national exposure for these amazing baseball players from Rhode Island and other New England states. I will continue to monitor PBR- New England’s website for more great regional coverage of some of the top baseball players Rhode Island has to offer. And once more, the website for Prep Baseball Report is www.prepbaseballreport.com.
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
