The High School Baseball Network (HSBN) will conduct its first invite-only All-American Weekend from Oct. 28 to Oct. 30.
The event is designed to recognize the local underclassmen who had exceptional 2016 seasons as well as preview the talent ahead of the 2017 season.
The weekend’s activities will be a showcase in which talented players will participate in a variety of skill-based challenges and live games. The games will be recorded and will be able to be viewed on HSBN’s YouTube channel.
Collegiate and Major League Baseball scouts from across the country will be in attendance as they search for local talent to fill out their recruiting classes.
Top local high school baseball players invited include Angelo Brunelas and John Campagnuolo of Wellington High School, Zack Brundage and Brendan Power of Palm Beach Central High School, Sean Houck and Nicholas Toney of Royal Palm Beach High School and Andrew Attaway of Seminole Ridge High School.
HSBN Director of Operations Anthony Uttariello is excited about increasing recognition for players in the network.
“We have always celebrated All-American and All-District players with an awards ceremony at the Senior All-Star games, but we felt like we wanted to do more,” Uttariello said. “This All-American Weekend is a chance for some of the top returning players to kick off the 2017 season, while also showcasing their skills to scouts. We are excited that we can bring this event to college coaches and MLB scouts across the country.”
