District 3 Baseball Championship: East Pennsboro vs Berks Catholic (copy)

East Pennboro's Nick Embleton is one of four locals on the 2018 Big 26 Baseball Classic Pennsylvania roster.

The Big 26 Baseball Classic will make its return after a one-year hiatus.

The all-star showcase will be held at Harrisburg’s FNB Field again, from July 19-22. There will be four locals on the Pennsylvania roster this season; rosters were announced Monday.

The local headliner is East Pennsboro pitcher/outfielder Nick Embleton, who has committed to St. Joe’s. The rising senior is joined by teammate Jake Madden, a sophomore outfielder/pitcher for the Panthers. Embleton hit .438 with 18 runs and 20 RBIs while going 4-2 on the mound in 32.1 innings with 42 strikeouts and a 3.68 ERA. Madden was .386 with 17 runs, 16 RBIs and 12 stolen bases, also tossing 17.1 innings for the Panthers.

Big Spring junior infielder Braden Petty (.250, 10 runs, 12 RBIs, 9 stolen bases) and Cedar Cliff junior infielder/pitcher Trey Law (batting: .304, 21 runs, 13 RBIs; pitching: 1-4, 32 IP, 30 K, 5.25 ERA) will also play for Pa., which leads the series against Maryland 3-2.

The Big 26 was not played in 2017 after the Big 33 administration underwent restructuring last summer. The Big 26 is now under direction from the Hershey Harrisburg Sports & Events Authority.
