The inaugural Big 26 Baseball Classic featuring the best prep players from Pennsylvania and Maryland is coming to Central PA this weekend. The series, similar to the Big 33 Football Classic between Pennsylvania and Ohio, will feature the top rising juniors from high school programs throughout the entire Keystone and Old Line states. Pennsylvania will square off against Maryland in three games Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 20-22.
The games Friday and Saturday night will be held at Sovereign Bank Stadium in York, home of the 2010 and 2011 Atlantic League Champion York Revolution. Sunday’s game will be held at Metro Bank Park in Harrisburg, PA, home of the Harrisburg Senators of the Eastern League.

Proceeds benefit The Big 26 scholarship fund. All players in the game will be entering their senior season in high school, however, each game will be nine innings in length, not seven.
