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, is working with San Gabriel Valley coaches with help from our San Gabriel Valley sports team of reporters to create the inaugural San Gabriel Valley/Pasadena Star-News/Whittier Daily News senior all-star game AND Underclassmen game on June 7 at the University of La Verne’s state of art softball complex. Similar to the annual Tribune/Star-News All-Star basketball games, players will be selected from the SGVN readership, pitting the Tribune vs. the Star-News/Whittier Daily News All-Stars on Sunday, June 7, which follows the June 5-6 CIF softball championships. The game will be a doubleheader with the exciting underclassman game followed by the final game for seniors. Coaches in the Star-News area wanting to nominate players should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and in Whittier email email@example.com, and also include me in the emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tribune coaches should get in touch with me or Jesse Mendez and of course this thread is a good place for readers to suggest who should be in the games.
