A pair of brothers who attend Cathedral Prep, Billy and Charlie Fessler, have been selected to compete in the Big 26 Baseball Classic in July.
Players who recently completed their sophomore and junior seasons from throughout the state were invited to try out for the Big 26, which is baseball’s equivalent to the Big 33 Football Classic. College coaches and Major League Baseball scouts were invited to attend the tryouts.
The Pennsylvania players selected will face a team of Maryland all-stars in a three-game series July 26-28 at Metro Bank Park in Harrisburg.
Billy Fessler, a 6-foot first baseman, will be a senior in the fall. Charlie Fessler, a 6-foot 4-inch outfielder, will be a junior. Also selected were Franklin junior-to-be pitcher Zach Guth and Meadville senior-to-be middle infielder Ted Williams.
Pottsgrove’s Mike Welch will serve as the Pennsylvania team’s head coach.
