We intend to use this forum to highlight any quick news items that come up as well as notes from games or tournaments we attend just as we do with our other blogs.
The High School Blog will not be limited to highlighting prep players that are prospects for the draft. We'll provide news on interesting games, coaching accomplishments and player feats. Anything we catch wind of that has to do with high school baseball, we'll pass it on.
As always, we encourage you to offer your comments on stories and ask questions. You can e-mail questions or even interesting tips and info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
