Danville sophomore makes Perfect Game All-America Team

Danville sophomore pitcher Brady Baxter was named to the 15u tournament All-American second Team, the organization announced Wednesday morning.

In three games, Baxter was 2-0 and didn’t allow an earned run while giving up 10 hits in 23.1 innings pitched. He struck out 23 batters and posted a 0.63 WHIP.

As a freshman for the Admirals last year, Baxter struck out 42 while only surrendering nine walks in 33.1 innings pitched. He toed the rubber in 15 games, including once as the starter and finished the season with a 3.99 ERA.

Perfect Game is largely regarded as the premier amateur baseball showcase, featuring several players who would go on to play in the Major Leagues. Their website boasts alumni MLB stars Bryce Harper, Christian Yelich, Manny Machado, Gerritt Cole, Javy Baez, Freddy Freeman and perhaps the best player in the world Mike Trout.

Baxter was the only 15u player from Kentucky to be make the teams.
