Yokota baseball player to attend stateside All-American camp

A Yokota senior infielder has been invited to attend a three-day Under Armour Preseason All-American baseball camp featuring more than 400 high school players from around the country Jan. 15-17 at Mesa, Ariz., according to a news release from The Baseball Factory, the event’s sponsor since 1999.

Woody Woodruff is a catcher and infielder who has played baseball in Europe and Asia. He transferred to Yokota from Ramstein, Germany, where he was chosen to the DODDS All-Europe baseball squad.

He was selected for the camp, the release said, because of his performance in the Arizona Senior Fall Classic in October. Players are selected based on their potential to play ball at the college or pro level. The camp has in the past featured future major leaguers such as Kris Bryant, Eric Hosmer, David Wright and Josh Donaldson.
