Gardner-Edgerton’s Bubba Starling was recently selected First Team All-USA by USA Today.
Jim Halley of USA Today cited Starling’s .481 batting average and averaging a home run per every six at bats among reasons for Starling’s selection.
Starling became the highest draft pick in Kansas City area history when the hometown Royals selected him No. 5 on June 6.
Starling, who signed with Nebraska for football and baseball, has yet to sign with the Royals and reported to the Cornhusker training camp on July 9.
