Cherokee High School shortstop Jason McMillan has been chosen to participate in this year’s Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City in Bradenton, Fla. on July 30 – Aug. 3.  Pirate City is the spring training home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and players attending the event will get to eat, sleep, train, and compete at the same facilities as the professionals.

“Jason’s strong performance at the Farragut, Tenn. Under Armour Baseball Factory National Tryout in June this year earned him a place on the Baseball Factory invite-only team,” Baseball Factory officials stated.  “Baseball Factory would like to wish Jason the best of luck at the Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City and looks forward to working with him throughout the rest of his high school baseball career.”

The Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City is a national event sponsored by Under Armour and powered by Baseball Factory.  Select 14-18 year old players from across the country will travel to Bradenton for five days of intense training and competitive game play.  Baseball Factory’s staff of former professional scouts, former professional players and former college coaches will work with players daily on all aspects of their game.  In addition, players will get to test their skills against some of their most talented peers from all over the country as they compete in tournament games to take home the Baseball Factory National World Series Championship title.
