BVB LEAGUE PLAYERS & FANS:
This Saturday, Burlington Vintage Baseball has been invited to put forward an All Star team made up of representatives from each of our nine teams to compete against the GHBL Tier 1 All Star Team.
The game will be held at 6:30 pm on Saturday evening at Nelson and will conclude the GHBL's day long All-Star Event. Our BVB All Star team will be managed by Jason McKay of the Mud Hens.
The GHBL has licensed this event, so there will be food and beer available for sale at the field. The games will be accompanied by music, national anthems, and PA will be provided by sports broadcaster & Burlingtonian Tony Ambrogio.
For those who will be playing in the game or are otherwise interested in attending, the schedule for the day will include:
1:00 pm: GHBL Tier 2 All Star Game
3:30 pm: Home Run Derby & Fastest Pitch Competition
6:30 pm: GHBL Tier 1 vs BVB All Star Game
The Home Run Derby & Fastest Pitch Competition event will be open to all competing players & the public/attendees. The entry cost is $5 per person, which also offers a raffle ticket for prizes. Prizes for the raffle include Jays tickets, tablets, a beer fridge, baseball bats, gloves, and gear and all proceeds will be donated to Jump Start, a charity that helps local kids participate in sports.
