The event brings some of the best high school talent in the country and has produced professional baseball players Dylan Bundy, Bryce Harper and Christian Yelich.

Since the inception of this event in 2006, Perfect Game has seen five alumni playing in Major League Baseball, close to 200 players get drafted, and 661 committed to colleges.

Perfect Game claims to be the largest independent scouting service in baseball, holding over 100 tournaments and showcases each year across the country. It reports to all 30 Major league Baseball organizations and most of the top college programs in the nation.

Donovan, who will be entering his junior year this fall, is 6-foot-6 and weighs 215 pounds. He is a right-handed pitcher and also plays third and first base.
