Players selected for inaugural Tribune vs. Whittier/Star-News All-Star softball games at the University of La Verne on June 7

West Covina High School softball coach Jesse Mendez, a catalyst in keeping the San Gabriel Valley all-star softball game alive the past couple years, worked with San Gabriel Valley coaches with help from our sports team of reporters at the SGVN to create the inaugural San Gabriel Valley/Pasadena Star-News/Whittier Daily News senior all-star AND Underclassmen game on Sunday, June 7, at the University of La Verne’s state of art softball complex. The underclassmen game is at 3 p.m., followed by the senior game at 5:30 p.m.
Similar to the annual Tribune/Star-News All-Star basketball games, players were selected from the SGVN readership, pitting the Tribune vs. the Star-News/Whittier Daily News All-Stars a day after the June 5-6 CIF softball championships.
Rosters have been selected and posted below. Coaches for the Whittier/Star-News teams are still being determined.
