Three Georgians to play in Under Armour All-America Game

Three rising Georgia seniors -- Mill Creek's Alek Boychuk, North Gwinnett's Corey Collins and Woodward Academy's Will Sanders -- will play in the Under Armour All-America Game on July 22 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Boychuk and Collins are both catchers, while Sanders is a pitcher.

According to its website, Under Armour All-Americans are selected by a committee of Baseball Factory scouts and compete in an American vs. National team match-up. The All-America Baseball Game is the culmination of a four-day premier baseball experience, highlighted by a formal workout for Major League Baseball (MLB) scouts and a home run derby, all while under the tutelage of some of the game’s best players and coaches.

Since the game’s inception in 2008, 365 of the 399 draft eligible players from the Under Armour All-America Game have been selected in the MLB Amateur Draft, including 108 first round picks.
