The All Star games have completed this year with an attendance that exceeded 275 people to watch the games and eat lunch. The games started a little differently this year with each team lining up on the 1st base and 3rd base line. Each player was awarded a baseball cap with the All Star batch embroidered on the hat and our Senior logo embroidered over the All Star patch. Also another twist to the games this year was awarded a player from each team an MVP trophy. The opposing manager selected the player from the other team that would receive this award.
