Ruston High School’s Ivan Wilson, who was a first-unit All-District 2-5A outfielder during the 2012 season, has been selected to participate in USA Baseball’s program that develops candidates for the upcoming East Coast Pro Showcase. Wilson compiled a .374 batting average for the Bearcats during their drive to a league title this spring.

A recent trip to Atlanta is being extended into other parts of the U.S. for Ivan Wilson, Jr.
The All-District 2-5A outfielder for Ruston High School’s 2012 league champions recently caught the attention of major league scouts with an outstanding performance at the annual Baseball MVP Showcase held in Atlanta, Ga.

So much that the 6-3 1/2 and 220-pounder will be flying out this weekend to participate in the USA Baseball Breakthrough Series in Cary, N,C., (July 22-26), then get right back on a plane a few days later to be one of 80 players invited to suit up for the prestigious East Coast Professional Baseball Showcase in Syracuse, N.Y. (July 31-Aug. 4).
