LOCAL baseball talent Jett Wright will again come under the watchful eye of Major League Baseball (MLB) clubs.
The Hamilton Hill 17-year-old will feature in the MLB Australian Academy Program (MLBAAP), which will offer clubs the chance to scout Australia’s best under-18 players.
The program will be held at the Surfers Paradise Baseball Club between July 28 and August 6, with Wright’s selection coming less than two months after he travelled to the USA for an MLB exhibition series.
This year nine West Australians will feature in the a pool of 51 Australian players selected.
Baseball Australia’s high performance manager Glenn Williams said the crop of players was rich with talent.
“These young men will have the chance to work with an amazing coaching staff that have a wealth of experience at the level of baseball they dream of playing at,” he said.
