NEMCABB all-star game selects area athletes
Baseball season may be over, but we still have a couple more opportunities to watch some of the area’s best players compete.
The North Mississippi Coaches Association for Better Baseball (NEMCABB) announced its lineups for the annual West/East All-Star games, which will take place on Saturday, May 26.
In the 1A/2A game, four Union County athletes will participate for the West team; Ingomar’s Stephen Laird, Myrtle’s Syd Beasley and West Union’s Zak Jumper and Drew Garrett. New Albany has a trio going for the West squad in the 3A/4A/5A game; Riley Alef, Mason Maxey and Easton Hall.
Union County had a great appearance in this year’s playoffs, with three teams forcing a deciding game three in their state quarterfinal series. With a lot of talent returning next year, I’m sure there will be even more excitement for the area.
Also announced by NEMCABB is its summer tournament, which will take place in June. The finals will be held at BNA Bank Park, and NAHS enters as the defending champion.
