(Ottawa) – The Premier Baseball League of Ontario (PBLO) is pleased to announce it will be hosting a 2021 PBLO All-Star Saturday this June. The big event, that will be hosted by Oshawa, will consist of two 9 inning All-Star Games featuring the top Junior (16U & 17U) and top Senior (18U) aged players in the PBLO playing in an East vs. West format.  Kinsmen Memorial Stadium, which has been host to numerous high profile provincial and national events, will be the site for the 2021 All-Star Games. The 2022 PBLO ASG will be hosted in London (Badgers).  

Plans are underway by the Oshawa Legionaires host committee to create an official ASG logo as well as create an amazing All-Star player experience for all participants.  The Junior ASG is scheduled for 1:00pm while the Senior ASG is set to go at 7:00pm under the lights.  As part of the All-Star day experience, the schedule will include pre-game check in and player packages, team warmup, and pre-game All-Star batting practice sessions on field teams. Special ASG player uniforms are being created that will also be a great souvenir keepsake of the event.

“We are extremely excited about this showcase event,” stated Don Campbell, PBLO President. “It is going to be a great day for our league as well as our players that will be taking part!”

Additional player and fan experience topics like: live game stats and scoring, PA Announcer, music, player walkup songs, in-dugout player refreshments & snacks, pre-game ceremonies, concession stand, personalized bullpen catchers for teams provided, custom ASG team photo opportunities, as well as exploring live stream broadcast capabilities for both games.

The PBLO teams are divided into East and West for the games. East – Ottawa Nepean Canadians, Ontario Yankees, Sudbury Voyageurs and Oshawa Legionaires. West – London Badgers, Oakville A’s, Sarnia Braves and Tecumseh Thunder. Roster nomination and selection process will take place involving coaches and the PBLO after the season starts in May.

This special All-Star showcase is a part of the PBLO strategy to showcase its teams and players as well as providing a great opportunity for baseball fans to see some of the best young players in the province. More details about the 2021 PBLO All-Star Games will be shared in the coming months.
