Submitted By Harry Weisdorf on Tuesday, January 11, 2022
(Ottawa) – The Premier Baseball League of Ontario (PBLO) is pleased to announce it will be hosting a 2022 PBLO All-Star Game Showcase on Saturday, June 11th. The big event, that will be hosted by Oshawa, will consist of two 9 inning All-Star Games featuring the top Junior (15U/16U) 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 2022 All-Star Games. The 2023 PBLO ASG will be hosted in London (Badgers).  

Plans are well underway and the Oshawa Legionaires host committee has created an official ASG logo as well as planned an amazing All-Star player experience for all participants.  The Junior ASG (15U/16U) is scheduled for 12:00pm while the Senior ASG (18U) is set to go at 6:00pm under the lights. Pre-game on field warmup and BP starts 2 hours prior to game time.  As part of the All-Star day experience, the schedule will include pregame game check in and player packages, team onfield warmup, and pre-game All-Star batting practice sessions MLB style. Special ASG player tees 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.
"This is about putting on a great showcase for the PBLO and it's talented players. We are thrilled to be hosting this special event", stated Ken Babcock, Oshawa Elite Programs Director.

The PBLO teams will be divided into East and West for the games. East – Ottawa Nepean Canadians, Ontario Yankees, Sudbury Voyageurs and Oshawa Legionaires. West – London Badgers, Midwestern Ontario Bearcats, 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 college bound players in the province. More details about the 2022 PBLO All-Star Games will be shared in the coming months. Official scouting roster program will be available.
