Under Armour All-Americans Making International Impact

Though the COPABE U-18 Pan-American Championships are just getting started in Santiago, Panama, several former Under Armour All-Americans are already making their presence felt.

Team USA has cruised to three easy victories so far: 16-0 over Honduras, 26-0 over Peru and 15-5 over Brazil. The loudest offensive noise has come from Tyler Callihan and Bobby Witt, Jr. Callihan has gone 7-for-10 over the three games with a team-leading 11 runs driven in. Much of his damage has come from extra base hits with two doubles, a triple and a home run through three games. Witt went a perfect 5-for-5 through the first two games, and has driven in seven while scoring seven runs. Also making an early tournament impact are CJ Abrams (5-for-12, five runs, five RBI from the leadoff spot), Anthony Volpe (5-for-9, nine runs, six RBI, four SB), Riley Greene (4-for-9, two doubles, seven runs, six RBI) and Corbin Carroll (4-for-9, four runs, five RBI, two doubles, two SB).

On the mound, Brennan Malone, Avery Short and Riley Cornelio have all contributed a scoreless inning. They have not allowed a hit and have combined for 4 Ks. In the third game of the series for Team USA, former UA All-American Jack Leiter struck out 11 in just four innings in the victory over Brazil. He allowed two hits and two unearned runs.

Former Under Armour All-Americans have also helped Team Canada to some early victories.

The Canadians have already played three games, earning wins over Colombia (8-3), Venezuela (8-2) and the Bahamas (17-3). In the win over Colombia, Cesar Valero broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the 6th inning with a two-run home run that put Team Canada ahead for good. Valero, who now has driven in seven runs in the event, also doubled in the game, while another UA All-America alum, Bo Naylor, went 2-for-3 with a double of his own. Also helping Canada’s offensive attack is former UA All-American, Denzel Clarke. Clarke had a big day in leading Canada to their victory over the Bahamas team going 2-for-3 with a double, triple, two walks and three RBIs.

Best of luck to all of the Under Armour All-American alumni as they continue play in this year’s Pan-Am Championships.
