Attention top HS baseball players!

By Breakdown Staff, 11/16/22, 3:45PM CST


Get registered today to be featured in the 2023 book, our 9th annual!

Invitations will soon be sent for our 9th 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.

How does it work? In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to keep in line with COVID-19 recommendations), we have spread all our photo shoots out over a multiple-hour period, with 5-minute time frames for photos.

  • Please bring your jersey, glove, bat, and a baseball
  • professional studio photographers are present
  • individual photos will be taken (group and combination photos will be taken if social distancing restrictions are eased and/or if the participants agree to have them taken).
  • individual information, including a biography and Q and A form, will be used in the Breakdown book
  • once you arrive, the photo shoot should be completed within 15 minutes

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 email We look forward to seeing you!
