Inland Valley all-star baseball game set for June 15

The 19th annual Inland Valley High School All-Star baseball game presented by the Daily Bulletin is scheduled for June 15 at the Epicenter. Seats are $5 and the first pitch will be at 6:30 p.m. after the gates open at 5:30. The game featuring the top seniors from the area will pit North against South with Interstate 10 providing the barrier between the two teams.

“I would like to thank both the City of Rancho Cucamonga and our administrative staff at the Daily Bulletin for making the game possible,” game director and Daily Bulletin sports editor Louis Brewster said. “With resources being trimmed on both sides and the tough economic period, we are also grateful to the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes for their continued support of one of the best-attended games of its kind in Southern California.”

Each school can nominate as many graduating seniors as it would like, but no more than three per school will make the 24-man roster. Nomination forms soon will be sent to area coaches, who can call (909) 483-9343 for more information.

“We will select teams that reflect achievement in on-field talent, academic excellence and citizenship, which includes involvement in the community,” Brewster said. “We are just not selecting one-dimensional players, but those who exceeded the criteria that was established with the first game.”
