USA Baseball’s Prospect Classic

I’m heading to North Carolina in the morning to cover USA Baseball‘s Prospect Classic, which will put most of the top high school and college players for the Draft class of 2013 on one field. You can find all the info you need on the event right here, but Games 1 and 2 will be at Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Friday and Saturday at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively. Friday’s game is part of a doubleheader, with the Bulls hosting the Syracuse Chiefs right after. The first two games will feature two squads that mix the 18 and under national trials team with the collegiate team. Game 3 is on Monday, at the USA Baseball complex in Cary, with Game 4 back in Durham (7 p.m. and 6 p.m. starts there). Those two contests will pit a pared-down 18U team against the collegiate team. Games 1 and 2 can be seen on MLB Network on delay, on July 2 and 3 at 11 a.m. ET each day. Game 4 will be streamed on USA and I’ll try to hop on here each day with some news and notes, along with regular written content I’ll be providing (in addition to teaming with Pete McCarthy and Chris Burke on the broadcast team).

Be sure to check out Twitter as well as @USABaseball will surely be active. There’s a hashtag — #prospectclassic — and you can even follow the tweets from the 18U (@USABaseball18U) and College (@USABaseballCNT) National Teams.
