|Barnegat High School senior left handed pitcher Jason Groome, the No. 1 overall prospect for June Major League Baseball draft, has been ruled ineligible by the state governing body for high school athletics for violating the state cheap jerseys transfer rule, NJ Advance Media has learned.
Barnegat must forfeit victories in which Groome played this season and his statistics over the past two weeks will be erased, including the 19 strikeouts he racked up during a no hitter he threw against Central Regional Monday.
