2017 PBR Future Games: Team PA vs. Team Michigan

By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting 

Team Pennsylvania carried a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the 6th inning, but was unable to seal the deal in a 7-3 loss to Team Michigan.

2019 OF Jayson Kramer (Cumberland Valley) led the Pennsylvania offense with a 2-for-3 game that included a ground rule double to dead center field. 2020 C Bryce Behmer (Lancaster Catholic) also went 2-for-3 including a 7th inning, two-out single that tied the game temporarily at 3-3.

+ A pair of 2020 catchers from Pennsylvania continued to showcase advanced defensive skills combining for five assists on the day.  Bryce Behmer (Lancaster Catholic), one caught stealing and a back pick, and Mark Black (Serra Catholic), three caught stealing, both flashed advanced arm strength.

+ 2020 3B Kevin Karstetter (State College) continued to flash the leather making a charging, body control play on a slow roller look easy to record an out early in the game.

+ 2019 LHP Aaron Groller (Souderton Area) showcased a balanced, effortless delivery with command of an above average slider.  Groller worked his second scoreless inning of the event and was especially effective against left-handed hitters.

Team Pennsylvania concludes game action today with a 10:00 am game vs.Team Ontario.
