Thirteen New England prospects will represent the Boston Red Sox scout team at Perfect Game's most prestigious showcase event of year -- starting next week in Jupiter, Fla.
The 23rd annual WWBA World Championship will be held Oct. 7 to 11 at the Roger Dean Complex, which also serves as the spring training complex for the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins. The WWBA World Championship is the top scouting attraction in all of amateur baseball each year. More than 700 MLB scouts and college coaches are expected to be in attendance.
The Red Sox scout team does not account for all of the New England players who will participate in the WWBA World Championship event, although it is one of only two teams based out of New England -- along with Northeast Baseball National. We will also highlight that roster as well as a collection of New Englanders representing travel teams from other regions.
Here is a look at the 13 New England players who will represent the Red Sox scout team at the WWBA World Championship.
