Hagen Danner dominating on the mound on the UCLA campus was a sight many expected to see—though perhaps not this soon.
Danner, a candidate for the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Baseball Player of the Year, carried a no-hitter into the 7th-inning of Huntington Beach’s (Calif.) 4-1 victory against Bellarmine Prep (San Jose) in the final of the Boras Classic state tournament at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
The dominant right-hander has committed to play at UCLA, though he’s expected to be a high pick in the upcoming MLB draft.
“This place is awesome,” Danner told the Los Angeles Times of UCLA. “That’s why I committed here. That’s why I signed here.”
It remains to be seen, however, if Danner will pitch there again.
