The DeMarini Hayes team will pickup two power arms for the trip reuniting USA Baseball National teammates "Tyler Halas" with "Addison Albright". Addison is a 6'3" hard throwing lefty from Cumming, GA with three pitches that he commands for strikes. In addition to Albright the Hayes team is also picking up DJ Pearson from Johns Creek, GA who is a 6'2" hard throwing lefty as well.
The DeMarini Koutnik team is picking up a power hitting catcher Buck Carter from Lake Park, GA. The 6' 225lb Carter is one of the best hitting catchers in the 2014 class and he plays 3rd and 1st base as well.
Team DeMarini adds, "We would like to offer a big thanks to Paul Byrd for sending us some players for this event! Paul spent 14 years in the big leagues as a pitcher and we are very excited to have his guys play with us for this event. Paul also brings his SEC and ACC college contacts to the mix and has already talked to a number of the big schools that will be in Florida during the tournament with plans to get out and watch both DeMarini teams play".
Tyler Halas has played for coach Byrd and here is what he had to say. "I met coach Byrd and played for him at the 2011 USA Baseball National Team Trials. He is one of the best coaches I have ever been around and his information to young players is great stuff. He has talked to a number of college coaches about me and I cant thank him enough". Tyler is also looking forward to seeing and playing with USA Teammate Addison Albright in Florida. "We are gonna bring back some old USA memories and win some games".
As we approach the Perfect Game Underclass Tournament, coach Byrd and Wilson/DeMarini have been talking for the last few weeks and are in the final stages of hammering out a deal that will convert his Georgia Roadrunners into "Official" Team DeMarini Georgia teams for the upcoming 2013 season. In our quest to build a true National Power, Paul's teams in Georgia are just one piece of the big picture that Team DeMarini is creating . With additional negotiations taking place between some other baseball programs around the country run by former big-league guys, Team DeMarini is on the verge of breaking some big news in the next few weeks.
