That means he will be heading back to Arizona in January 2014 to play with and against other Pre-Season All Americans for the opportunity to play at Wrigley Field in the All American game, which will be televised on the MLB channel.

The 2013 Under Armour Pre- Season All-Americans are selected based on a strong performance at a previous Baseball Factory Event, such as the National Championship Derek played in.

The 2014 Under Armour All- America Pre-Season Tournament will feature the top high school players in a 20-team wood bat tournament. Pro scouts representing 23 of the 30 Major League Baseball teams attended the event in the past two years and a similar turnout in 2014 is expected.

Derek will be a Senior at Lexington High School this year and will be the starting catcher for the Eagles. This will be his fourth year as a starter for the Eagle Baseball team.

He is the son of Wade and Jennifer Dane of Dime Box.
