East Texan pitching at Wrigley Field in All-American Game

CHICAGO, IL -

Mt. Pleasant senior Michael Kopech is going to pitch in one of the legendary stadiums in baseball history.

Kopech has been selected for the Under Armour All-American game, to be played at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

"I'm sure I will have nerves," said Kopech. "But I am not going to go out there shaking, I'm just trying to take in the whole experience."

This is the 3rd high school All-American team Kopech has been named to.

The game is set to be broadcast at 1:30 on the MLB Network.

"The fact that I get to pitch at Wrigley Field on national TV is unbelievable," said Kopech. "I am speechless, it is going to be great, I am so excited."
