Today Wrigley Field welcomed some of the nations top high school baseball players to compete in a two team exhibition to showcase their talents on front of the entire nation. Many of the players today will eventually play in college and are hoping to one day make it to the show. Each player is guaranteed to play and some will also participate in a home run derby prior to the game. This game will be an excellent opportunity for these young men not only to play on a major league park and be in a big league environment, but also to show scouts for both colleges and major leagur teams what they are capable of doing. One name to watch is Kacey Clemens. Son of former big league pitcher Roger Clemens. He has the size and ability to be noticed. Also a pitcher like his father, I’m sure scouts will haves their radar guns ready when he takes the mound.
It will be interesting to see what lites ahead for these young men and whether or not any of them really have what it takes to make it to the show.
