Under Armour at Wrigley FieldUnder Armour and Baseball Factory today announced that the 2008 Under Armour All-America Baseball game will be played at the historic Wrigley Field on Sunday, August 17. Previously called the Cape Cod High School Baseball Classic presented by Under Armour, this marks the first-year that Under Armour will serve as the game's title sponsor. This is the first-ever high school All-America game to be played at Wrigley Field.

The game is airing live nationally on ESPNU at 1:20 p.m. CDT.

The 2008 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game, powered by Baseball Factory, will showcase thirty-six of the nation's best rising juniors and seniors, competing in a Baseball Factory versus Team One Baseball match-up. The players are selected by a committee of Baseball Factory and Team One Baseball scouts.

Since the game's inception in 2005, 39 participants have been selected in the Major League Baseball draft including Josh Vitters (No.3 overall pick in 2007, Chicago Cubs) and Philippe Aumont (No.11 overall pick in 2007, Seattle Mariners). The game provides the players the opportunity to perform in front of numerous scouting directors and player personnel decision makers from Major League Baseball. Approximately 100 scouts and college coaches attended last year's game to evaluate the Under Armour All-Americans.

Tickets will go on sale at 3:00 p.m. through cubs.com and tickets.com. All tickets will be $5 and seating will be general admission.
