The 2012 Silver & Black Series is once again loaded with top baseball prospects from throughout the Midwest. Several Silver & Black Series Alumni are projected to be selected in this week's MLB First-Year Player Draft, June 4-6.
WALWORTH, WI, June 03, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The 9th annual Silver & Black Series presented by Sandlot Baseball, Inc. will take off on June 10th at Symonds/Puckett Field, Triton College in River Grove, Illinois.

John Sarna, Director of the Silver & Black Series said, "The Silver & Black Series has evolved into a can't miss event. An evaluator has the opportunity to sit back and take in a match up to the likes of Ian Krol vs. Zach McAllister or TJ McFarland vs. Charlie Tilson, every pitch, every at bat."
Player registration begins on both days at 9 AM. Each team will play two games with each pitcher being held to a 15 pitch count/maximum per inning.
The Silver and Black Series is one of the top baseball events in the Midwest. The student-athletes who have exhibited superior skill on the baseball diamond and exceptional character off the diamond are invited annually to exhibit their talents amongst professional scouts and college coaches.
Says Arizona State recruit Brett Lilek, "The Silver & Black Series put on by Sandlot Baseball, Inc. is a premiere event showcasing the talents from the best athletes in the Chicagoland area. Not only is it a pro style workout and game, but you are given the opportunity to impress MLB teams and many collegiate level schools. You are allowed to better yourself to play the game and compare your talents at no cost."
The top high school baseball players from the Midwest have been invited to this quality event free of charge. The June 10th Silver & Black Series participants will also benefit with an invite to the Area Code tryouts, June 25th & 26th at Elgin Community College and Triton College. Players selected for the White Sox Area Code team will travel to California in August to compete in the prestigious Area Code Games.
