The senior game is scheduled for Mt. San Antonio College at 7 p.m. on June 9, with the underclassmen game slated for Alhambra High School at 2 p.m. on June 8.
The Senior Blue Team will be led by pitchers Andrew Eppenbach, of Bishop Amat, and Grant Hockin, of Damien. Eppenbach has been a key for the Lancers reaching Friday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3 quarterfinals. He’s 4-5 with a 2.92 ERA and has 47 strikeouts in 56 innings.

The Senior Red team, which has won the past seven games, including 5-4 last season, is also pitching deep with Alhambra’s Marco Briones, Glendora’s Kale Morton and Sierra Vista’s Erik Gutierrez. Briones was arguably the top pitcher in the West Valley, with a 9-0 record and 0.40 ERA for the Moors. Morton topped East Valley pitchers with a school-record 12-0 mark, with a 1.58 ERA to help the Tartans win the Baseline League title. Gutierrez is 9-1 with a 1.22 ERA for the Dons, who are in the CIF-SS quarterfinals for the first time in two decades.
