Baseball: Schellenger to play in prestigious Area Code Games

Devon Prep senior righthander Zach Schellenger has been selected to a Northeast region squad, representing the New York Yankees, that will compete in the New Balance Area Code Games from Aug. 5-10 in Long Beach, Calif.

The rosters of eight regional teams will include the best high school players from across the country, including many of the top prospects for Major League Baseball's 2104 first-year player draft.

Schellenger, a Seton Hall recruit who helped lead Devon Prep to the PIAA District 1 Class A final in the recently completed season, was an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection.

In an Area Code Games tryout at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Schellenger's fastball topped out at 93 m.p.h.
