Spring Training photos: KC area native Jason Adam
Many young baseball players dream of suiting up for the hometown team. Today we highlight a pitcher who is on his way to realizing that dream – Jason Adam of Overland Park, Kansas. The Royals selected Jason in the fifth round of the 2010 June Draft out of Blue Valley Northwest High School. Baseball America has ranked the righty among KC’s top 10 prospects in each of the last three seasons. Adam has worked his way through the system, pitching at Kane County (A) in 2011, Wilmington (High-A) in 2012 and Northwest Arkansas (AA) in 2013. 2014 marks his first invitation to Major League Spring Training.
