MARIETTA, Ga. -- Pro Player Academy was one of the few teams that was able to avoid rain and get a game in today at East Cobb for the 2013 17u WWBA National Championship. Simeon Lucas took advantage of the opportunity to show off his talents in front of a crowd of collegiate coaches and professional scouts, which he’s become accustomed to doing.
The 97th ranked prospect for the class of 2014 impressed the scouts again in the five-inning contest against the East Cobb New England Indians. Lucas went 1-for-2 with a single through the right side gap. He was also hit by a pitch and came around to score twice.
Pro Player Academy piled on the runs to win 12-3 just before another downpour came to wash away today’s remaining games. The coach of Pro Player Academy was happy to get the game at the East Cobb Complex in.
