Breakthrough Series July 20-23

The 2009 Breakthrough Series was held at the Urban Youth Academy from July 20-23.  Eighty high school baseball players from all over the country converged to participate in the second annual event. The players were divided into four teams and played games against each other while Major League Baseball scouts and college recruiters evaluated the athletes.

During Monday’s festivities, Frank Robinson, Tommy Davis and Reggie Smith came out to talk to the ballplayers to give them some advice and words of wisdom.

The event was put on by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball in order to give the top high school talent some extra exposure.
