New England Collegiate Baseball League

2014 NECBL All-Star Game

ABOUT
The 21st annual NECBL All-Star game will be held on Sunday, July 20, at MacKenzie Stadium in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Hosted by the Valley Blue Sox, the NECBL All-Star game showcases the NECBL’s top student-athletes in a fun-filled afternoon and evening of baseball splendor.

While first pitch is slated for just after 5 p.m., the festivities start earlier in the afternoon, as our participants partake in a variety of skills competitions to showcase their talents in front of scouts from virtually every Major League team. Join us for batting practice, an outfield throwing accuracy test, the 60-yard dash competition, and of course, the Home Run Derby all afternoon long.
