By Drew Locascio
Illinois Scouting Director

On Jan. 13, at The MAX sports facility in McCook, Ill., PBR will be hosting the winter's Unsigned Senior Showcase. You can find registration information within the previous hyperlink, but we’ll use this post today, as well as the posts following this one leading up to this week’s event, to shine the light on a few of the attending prospects who merit specific mentioning.

One of the top outfielders in attendance on Sunday could be Joseph Selvaggio of Lincoln-Way East. Selvaggio saw time as a junior for the Griffin's, who went 28-6 in 2018 and finished No. 14 in the Final Power 25 rankings. Below is a quick snapshot of the projectable outfielder with video and a scouting report from this past October.
