Aiden Smith from Shelbyville, Indiana, a teammate on the Indiana Twins 10u travel baseball club, received MVP awards during 2 tournaments during their season play, which 2 of their tournaments were ran by Game Day USA. Earning these awards automatically nominated Aiden a spot to play on the Game Day USA All-Star team at Grand Park, Westfield, Indiana, August 12-13. Aiden represented the Indiana Twins team as an All-Star for Game Day USA, and played along with many other players from the Great Lakes Region.
During this tournament, they competed in 2 pool play games, and tournament play. They also competed in a homerun derby, a pitching contest, and a base running contest. Skills evaluations were completed on each player, as well as their performance during the All-Star tournament. Game Day USA had scouts at each game evaluating player performance during the tournament. Aiden was selected by Game Day USA Scouts, to participate in the Junior All-American Games.
Aiden is one of many who were chosen from over 3,000 All-Star participants in different regions across the USA, to receive this special invitation. Last year, there were 600 Players from 23 different states who participated in the Junior All-American Games.
Aiden has chosen to participate in the Junior All-American Games in Sarasota, Florida, at the Baltimore Orioles Spring Training Complex. This event will take place from November 24-26 during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
Aiden will get to participate in a Pro-Style Combine and Evaluation, Opening Ceremonies at the stadium, Parade of Junior All-Americans, game competition, individual sport performance evaluations and skills competition. This is certain to be a memorable experience for all athletes and their families. During this event, there is a chance he could be selected to play at the Disney Games over Christmas Break.
