2015 Under Armour All-America Game Preview

Players arrived in Chicago Thursday for the eighth annual Under All-America Game, powered by Baseball Factory. Since 2008, 217 of the eligible participants have been selected in the Major League Baseball draft, including 60 first-round picks. The 2015 draft saw six former Under Armour All-Americans get picked in the first round—SS Brendan Rodgers (Colorado Rockies, third overall), OF Kyle Tucker (Houston Astros, fifth overall), 1B Josh Naylor (Miami Marlins, 12th overall), LHP Brady Aiken (Cleveland Indians, 17th overall), RHP Ashe Russell (Kansas City Royals, 21st overall) and RHP Beau Burrows (Detroit Tigers, 22nd overall).
The 2015 edition of the game brings in another talented crop of draft prospects, including RHP Riley Pint (St. Thomas Aquinas HS, KS), the top right-hander in the country. Pint just put his electric arsenal on display at the Area Code Games in Long Beach, CA, where he touched 98 mph while mixing in a nasty, low-80s slider and good changeup.
