Shorecrest pitcher Marc Brakeman was named most valuable pitcher of the Perfect Games WWBA after helping Baton Rouge-based Marucci Elite win the tournament title.
There were 85 teams at the tournament and more than 800 Major League Baseball scouts, including 14 from the Yankees. Brakeman, who already has committed to Stanford, got a nine-pitch save in one game and had a no-hitter going into the seventh inning of another.
Former Alonso pitcher Jose Fernandez, who was selected in the first round by the Marlins this spring, was named MVP of the Perfect Games WWBA last year.
Brakeman, a senior, was the 2010 Times pitcher of the year after leading the Chargers to the Class 2A state title game.
