A trio of area high school juniors will travel to Iowa next week for one big baseball weekend.
Truman’s Rory Combs and Blue Springs South’s Tyler Clark and Will Hughes have been invited to participate in the Perfect Game Midwest Underclass Showcase, Aug. 22-24 at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids.
Perfect Game is a national scouting information service that also hosts numerous regional and national showcase events across the country. Combs, Clark and Hughes all played summer baseball for Midwest Heat, a Kansas City-based club team coached by William Chrisman teacher Nick Magnifico. Players were invited to participate based on recommendations from coaches.
