Carl Albert catcher Corey Zangari continued his impressive summer Tuesday when he was selected for the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Aug. 16.
There’s a slight change in position for Zangari, too.
Normally a catcher for the Titans, Zangari is listed as a pitcher for the game. He saw limited action on the mound for Carl Albert the past few seasons, but is regularly clocked on the radar gun in the upper 90s.
“With a powerful arm and a sharp breaking ball, Corey is an intimidating presence on the mound,” said Steve Bernhardt, Executive Vice President of Baseball at Baseball Factory and Chairman of the selection committee for the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game. “A talented all-around prospect who can swing the bat as well, we are excited to see Corey impress the scouts at Wrigley Field this summer in the Under Armour All-America Game.”
Zangari, who is 6 foot 4 and 220 pounds, hit .505 with 11 home runs and 56 RBIs last season. He is also verbally committed to Oklahoma State.
He was selected earlier in the summer for the Perfect Game All-American Classic on Aug. 10 at San Diego’s Petco Park.
The Under Armour game will be televised at 7 p.m. Aug. 17 — a day after it is played — on MLB Network (Cox 264). It features 38 players from across the country.
