Siani's Snag Catches Eye of MLB

With a lot of hard work and a touch of luck, baseball fans may know someday the name Mike SianiOver the weekend, the Penn Charter senior-to-be gave them quite a head start.

Each year, 80 of the top American amateur baseball players under the age of 18 gather to participate in the USA Baseball Tournament of Stars. The national exposure helps players who hope to open eyes and succeed at the next level.

Siani was one of those 80 players selected this year to participate in the Tournament of Stars. Siani, the Quakers’ starting center fielder and a University of Virginia verbal commit, was a member of Team United. On Saturday in the bronze medal game against Team Brave in Cary, N.C., Siani made an unbelievable running, diving catch on a ball that looked certain to sail over his head in center. It’s one you have to see to truly believe. 

MLB.com has the video. 

Siani also batted leadoff for Team United, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base in the 7-2 loss to Team Brave.
