Alex Verdugo earns Under Armour Silver Spike Awardby Andy Morales on Aug. 26, 2013, under Sports
It did not matter that the American team beat the National team 8-7 in the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game on Saturday at Wrigley Field, Sahuaro senior Alex Verdugo still won the Under Armour Silver Spike Award.
Verdugo was the only player from Arizona selected for the game and one of 36 in the nation. Verdugo also pitched for the Cincinnati Reds at the Area Code Games held early August in California.
Although Verdugo has chosen Arizona State for college, he is sure to be a high MLB draft choice due to his bat and glove as well as his pitching arm.
