2016-2017 Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year

On Wednesday, May 31st, MacKenzie Gore thought he was being interviewed for an upcoming piece highlighting the top high school baseball players ahead of the MLB Draft.

Instead, he was named the 2016-17 Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year when former Cub Kerry Wood interrupted the shoot by riding onto the field driving a lawn mower with the trophy on board and surprised Gore shortly before he was dunked in Gatorade by his teammates. 

In addition to the above, the video is also available on the Gatorade POY YouTube page: MacKenzie Gore: 2016-2017 Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year​​.
