Player to Watch: Braden Thomas
Travel Team: Southern Madison Sluggers
Competing in three Baseball Youth events since August, Braden’s spot as a Player to Watch is well earned. Braden’s distinction as Class of 2025 MVP at the Kentucky All-American Games earned him a spot on the Baseball Youth Elite 11U teams at the Cal Ripken Experience in both Myrtle Beach and Pigeon Forge this past October. A menace at the plate, Braden hit for 7 extra-base-hits in 8 at bats and for 11 RBIs in those two weekends.
