Lawrence's Brad Harker has been selected to play in the National Amateur All-Star Baseball Tournament later this month in Evansville, Ind.

Harker, who played first base for Kansas State as a freshman this spring and is currently on the roster of the LABA Raiders, was chosen to play for the AABC all-stars.

Also on that team is Ben Grieve of Arlington, Tex., the second pick in Thursday's free agent baseball draft. Grieve was selected by the Oakland Athletics.

The second-annual NAABT tournament, scheduled June 21-25, pits 20-player all-star teams from the nation's best youth baseball leagues in a round-robin series, with the title game to be televised on ESPN.

In addition to the AABC, the all-star teams represent the Babe Ruth League, Dixie Baseball, PONY and the National Amateur Baseball Federation.

Former Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres standout Steve Garvey serves as Honorary Commissioner to this year's tournament.

Former major leaguers Cecil Cooper, Steve Rogers, Bill Madlock, George Foster will serve as honorary team captains.
