Lake Stevens High School’s own Branden Kelliher is playing for this year’s Area Code Baseball Team.

Kelliher also made the Seattle Mariners Fall Ball team and will go to Peoria, Ariz. with the team.

On top of making the Seattle Mariners he was also chosen to compete in the Safeco field event “Mariner NW Workout” on August 24.

He was invited to the National Junior Perfect Game Showcase June 12-13 and was chosen as one of the top prospects and graded as a 9.5 out of 10 grading scale. Kelliher threw a 91 mph pitch in this event.

He has hit a high of 93 mph so far this year in a tournament for Marucci Elite in Marietta, Georgia and was chosen as a standout in that tournament.

Kelliher will be a junior at Lake Stevens High School.
