The second annual Missouri/Illinois high school baseball showcase returns to Busch Stadium on June 20 and figures to be bigger and better than the inaugural event a year ago.
The teams are comprised of 25 seniors from Missouri against 25 seniors from Illinois and are coached by former St. Louis Cardinals Mike Matheny and John Mabry.
. . .
The rosters are loaded with players who will continue their baseball careers in college and some who will get selected in the Major League Baseball Draft this week.
Graves, a right-handed pitcher from Howell, was selected as the Gatorade Missouri player of the year last week. He has signed with Missouri, as have Howell teammate Jake Ivory and Lafayette left-hander Jake Busiek.
Graves, Ivory and Howell teammates Munson and Peel led the Vikings to their second Missouri championship over the weekend, as did Allee at Westminster.
