Attention top HS baseball players!

By Breakdown Staff, 01/09/17, 6:30PM CST


The Breakdown's annual photo shoot invites are being sent now!

Invitations will be sent for our 3rd annual Breakdown Sports Media baseball photo shoots! Those who are invited are among a select group of players from all over Minnesota, representing different geographic areas and grades who have been selected for this honor. All invitations were sent through your high school coach via email.

How are players selected? The Breakdown has a panel that consists of members all across Minnesota. At the conclusion of the season, our staff submits its picks of players worthy to be considered among the best in the state and from that list, a group of finalists is selected for this honor.

What’s next? Please fill out the registration forms, which includes information that will appear in your profile in the book.

What to bring? Your high school uniform, including bat and glove.

How does it work? In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to avoid unnecessary wait times), we have spread our photo shoots out over a several-hour period. Please feel free to come at any point during the shoot, but be advised that the first hour is usually the busiest.

At the photo shoot, we’ll take several photos of you in your high school uniform, as well as group photos with any teammates that have been invited. You’ll be recognized among the top baseball players in the state! Our book is viewed by colleges across the nation.

Can't make it to any of the dates? You can still be in the book and receive the same special deal! Just fill out the registration form without selecting a date, complete the Q and A form and email a photo to

If your schedule changes, please come when you can, but be advised there may be a wait. If you have any questions, please call 612-454-1440 or email at We look forward to seeing you!
