5/31/20 - All-Star Series Announcement -

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic issues that we are facing, the IHSBCA 2020 All-Star Series will be cancelled this summer.  This was not an easy decision to make, but to keep all involved safe we feel it is the right decision for this summer's event.  Our plan is to still have the All-Star Coaches pick the four All-Star Teams.  We need high school coaches to send in their senior nominee's by July 10th.  We will send each selected player a certificate towards their selection to one of the four All-Star Teams.  We understand that the 2020 senior class has lost out on graduation, prom, half a baseball season, and other school events.  We feel it is important to honor our seniors this way by continuing to select the All-Star Teams, despite having to cancel the event for this summer.  If you have questions, please contact Lee Toole or Dave Rock.  

With the go ahead by the Governor to start baseball practices on June 1 and games can begin on June 15, many of you may be looking for games to add to your schedule.  Send me an email and I will add your request for games to this list.
