Hagen Danner, Blake Rutherford named all-tourney at National High School Invitiational

By

Hagen Danner and Chad Minato of champion Huntington Beach (Calif.) were named to the National High School Invitiational all-tournament team released Monday by USA Baseball.

Huntington Beach won the tournament in Cary, N.C., with a 7-2 victory against Chaminade Prep (Canoga Park, Calif.) in the final.

Danner, an American Family Insurance Preseason ALL-USA selection as a junior, was named all-tournament for his work at the plate, hitting .538, with five runs scored and four RBI, and one the mound. He pitched 5 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts in an early-round game. Minato hit .545, with six runs and four RBI.

Chaminade’s Blake Rutherford, who might be the first high school position player selected in the June MLB and also a Preseason ALL-USA selection, also was named to the All-NHSI team. He hit .643 with three extra-base hits and scored five runs. Chaminade catcher Nick Kahle also was named to the team. He hit .467 with a pair of home runs for the runners-up.
