Scouting the UA All-American Game

The talent at the Under Armour All-American Game at Wrigley Field this past Saturday was very similar to the talent at the Perfect Game All-American Game from the previous Sunday, losing a small number of players to USA Baseball's U18 (18-and-under) team and adding a few names from the eastern half of the country as well as two Dominican prospects who can sign next July. The bigger difference was that the players generally looked fatigued on Sunday, probably the result of the game appearing at the end of a long summer calendar.
• One player who actually made himself some money was Jonathan Denney, a catcher from Yukon, Okla., who squared up three balls after a strong performance the previous week at the Area Code Games (where he hit a long home run and followed it with some major league-caliber showboating).
