It’s a big week for PALL alumni. Joc Pederson is starting the MLB All-Star game on Tuesday, July 19. In addition, two PALL alumni are selected in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft on Sunday, July 17.
Henry Bolte, who just completed his senior year at Palo Alto High School and has committed to play baseball at the University of Texas, was selected by the Oakland A’s with the 56th pick, and Josh Kasevich, a Palo Alto High grad and current infielder at the University of Oregon, was chosen four slots later by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Not surprisingly, both players excelled in their Palo Alto Little League careers. Bolte was on the city championship team and was league MVP in 2016 . Kasevich, a Palo Alto Little League All-Star, finished his PALL career in 2013.
