Many of New England's top prospects in the Class of 2023 -- and even some in the Class of 2024 -- competed in the 2021 WWBA Underclass World Championship last week in Fort Myers, Fla.
The Perfect Game event for underclassmen is held each year at MLB spring training complexes and offers sophomores and juniors an opportunity to play in a prestigious fall showcase event in front of pro scouts and college coaches.
The Underclass World Championship is not quite as selective as the WWBA World Championship, which is Perfect Game's most prestigious showcase event for the top high school players in the country. Only 47 prospects from New England earned selections and two teams based out of New England — the Red Sox scout team and North East Baseball National -- earned invites.
By comparison, 10 teams based out of New England competed at the Underclass World Championship. Here's a look at the standout performers for each of the New England teams.
