Local high school players get the attention of scouts at WWBA National Championship at LakePoint
Several local players, led by Cartersville High School rising senior, Elliott Anderson, and Cass High School rising junior, Bailey Campbell, had key performances for their teams this past week at Perfect Game's 2015 World Wood Bat Association 17U National Championship tournament. The event is the most heavily scouted tournament of its kind in the world with hundreds of college and professional baseball scouts in attendance on a daily basis.
The event is played on dozens of fields in the metro Atlanta area and across north Georgia, but is headquartered and centered at the eight-field Perfect Game South complex at LakePoint Sporting Community in Emerson. Other local high school players included Brett Gaddy (Cass), Jacob Fowler (Cartersville), Joseph Cuomo (Excel Christian), Cole Jameison (Cartersville), Sam Seaman (Adairsville), Carrington Evans (Cartersville), and Brycen Jones (Excel Christian).
