USA Maverick players Cody Morissette, Brennen Oxford, Michael Sterritt, Wes Tobin and Griffin Young were among 68 players chosen for the All-Star team at the Lynn Invitational.
The Lynn Invitational is a summer baseball showcase based at Fraser Field in Lynn, MA for the best high school players in New England. The Invitational attracts more than 120 players from the region. It's a showcase of individual talents and to see how players react to game situations. Most are incoming juniors and seniors in high school but there are sophomores sprinkled in within the group.
The players were divided into four teams, and they played games Saturday and Sunday. Of that group, two all-star teams were picked for the Tuesday August 18th game at Fraser Field.
"This is a great opportunity for college coaches and pro scouts to see some of the up-and- coming baseball players in the area," says co-organizer and NY Yankee scout, Joel Karakaedos. "Over the years, this has attracted a lot of players because they like the environment. They're playing at a pro venue (Fraser Field) and I think it's good to show what's good about Lynn."
"This showcase is a great start for local kids to get exposure," says co-organizer Tim Fila. "We get a lot of college coaches here, and even some pro scouts. It's become one of the premier showcases around."
