Anthony Quigley is no stranger to the big stage, but there’s nothing quite like Fenway Park.
The University of South Florida commit is set to play in his biggest setting yet, selected as a right fielder and first baseman for the upcoming Main Event, set for September 29-October 1.
Quigley was teammates with Jason Flores — who also earned an invite to Boston, but will be on the orange team, while Quigley will be on the white team — at the Baseball Factory All-America Game at Globe Life Park, and knows that this experience will be unlike any other he’s had thus far.
“Being able to play at Fenway has been a dream,” he said “My dad is a really big Red Sox fan, so I’m excited to be able to play there and (having) him be able to watch me on that field. Everyone knows how cool Fenway is and it’s just an honor to be in that field where many legends have played.”
An extremely intriguing athlete at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, Quigley says he’s been working on his hitting of late, teaming with Infinite Hitting in his home state of Florida on various drills, reps and adjustments to try to get the most out of his game.
But, at the end of the day, he’s also not putting too much pressure on himself to be something he isn’t at this event or any other. Even with a seemingly endless guest list of big-league scouts and executives set to attend the Main Event next weekend, he said he’s simply “excited to show them myself.”
“My true raw self,” he said. “I like to go into events knowing I’m there for a reason, and I like to just play the way I love to play and have fun. No added pressure, just fun on the diamond and getting work done.”
