Tribune News Service

Not only can Carson High’s Kevin Schlange and Tony Fagan say they played in a preseason All-American tournament. They can say they won it.

Schlange, who grew up in South Lake Tahoe before moving to Carson City several years ago; Fagan and Carson teammate Royal Good all played in the Baseball Factory Puma Preseason All-American Tournament in Tucson, Ariz. and all three had impressive efforts. Schlange and Fagan went on to play for the team that won the tournament title.

The tournament featured about 150 top senior high school players from across the country, who had the chance to demonstrate their skills in front of college coaches and Major League scouts. Schlange and Good are seniors and while Fagan is just a junior, he received an invitation to the tournament as well.

Schlange and Fagan played for the National team that went 3-0 to win the tournament that was broken up into 14 teams.

Schlange went 3-for-6 in the tournament, with a double, RBI, two stolen bases and a walk. He played shortstop, second base and third.

“It was a pretty exciting tournament,” he said. “It was just a lot of fun. It was a good experience. I’m very pleased.”
