Seven Grand Strand baseball players were selected to the North-South All-Star Baseball series Tuesday, and they’ll wrap up their high school careers close to home.
Ryan Flynn (Carolina Forest), Brandon Young (Aynor), Seth Wall (Georgetown), Tanner Chock (Loris), Landon Edwards (Myrtle Beach), Hunter Renfrow (Socastee) and Trent Revis (St. James) will play in the event, which will be June 12-14 at The Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach. The format remained that of four rosters with multiple games scheduled.
Those seven join Georgetown’s Kevin Woodall Jr., Socastee’s Kyle Smith and Carolina Forest’s Robert Jolly, who last week were named to the S.C. vs. N.C. Select series, the sport’s top all-star game for players in the Carolinas. That series will take place at TicketReturn.com Field starting June 12.
Flynn, who has signed to continue playing at The Citadel, was named the Panthers’ MVP after hitting .283. The outfielder threw out three runners at home. In spot duty on the mound, Flynn was 3-1 with a 0.49 ERA and a pair of saves.
He’ll play for the Class AAAA/A team in the North-South series.
The other six will comprise more than a third of the Class AAA/AA squad in the event.
Young, a Francis Marion signee, hit .388 with four home runs and 27 RBIs for Aynor. He also scored 24 runs offensively while playing multiple outfield and infield positions defensively.
Georgetown’s Wall, who is committed to Spartanburg Methodist, wrapped up his impressive career by hitting .416 with 20 home runs and a fielding percentage of .976 behind the plate.
Chock, who last week was named the Class AA Player of the Year by the South Carolina Baseball Coaches Association, was the primary cog for a Loris team that advanced to the state finals against Ninety Six. Chock has signed with Presbyterian.
Edwards was all over the field for the Seahawks. Over the course of the season, he played catcher, third, center, right and first, as well as some time pitching. He batted .316.
Renfrow hit .489 with six doubles and a triple. The center fielder did not commit an error in 43 attempts and was named the Region VII-AAA Player of the Year.
Revis, a first baseman and St. James’ top pitcher, was 5-3 with a 1.91 ERA while also hitting .356 with 15 RBIs and 13 runs scored.
In addition to the all-star nods, Young and Renfrow were named to their respective all-state teams last week.
