8/12 Under Armour game at Wrigley

On Saturday, 40 of the best high school baseball players in the country will take part in the 2014 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game. The game will be played at 6:05 p.m. CT.

Among the players to take part is Kyler Murray of Allen, Texas, who is the first to be selected for both the Under Armour All-America Baseball and the Under Armour All-America Football games. He is best known as the top dual-threat quarterback in the country, and has led Allen High School to two straight Texas 5A state titles.

This is the first time the annual summer showcase will be played under the lights at Wrigley Field. Since the game’s inception in 2008, 185 of the 208 Draft eligible players from the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game were selected in the MLB Amateur Draft, including 51 first round picks.

This Murray kid is really good! I’ve gone to see him play.

Do you have a sense as to which sport the young man is likely to pursue after high school, tomntex?

Haven’t seen him play baseball but been to a number of football games. I believe he is leaning in that direction. He is committed to Texas A@M next fall.
