Columbia, S.C. –
South Carolina outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. (Prince George, Va./Prince George HS) was tabbed by Baseball America as the No. 19 best prospect out of the Cape Cod Baseball League this summer. The Gamecock outfielder played for the Hyannis Mets. He was the third highest rated sophomore on the list as well. This past season, Bradley earned consensus Freshman All-America honors after a productive first year with the Gamecocks batting .349 (89-for-255) with 11 HR and 46 RBI.
