LMBL All Star Game a HUGE Success
A (soon to be) Midsummer Classic.

The word classic means “judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind”. This is why we mention soon to be, because our recent LMBL All Star game was an astounding success.

The event started with the Hardest Pitch, with plenty of participants were involved. Ryan Zammit of the
Brewers threw his way into winning the Lead and no one would go above his sizzling 78mph. in addition
to the notoriety of having the fastest pitch, Ryan also took home a gift card from The Morrissey House.

Next up, the Fastest Runner Challenge. Each challenger seemed to be faster than the next. No one was able
to keep up with Steve ‘The Flow' Froese of the Expos. He dispatched the other contenders, running from
1st to 3rd in 8.20 seconds. Steve also ran away with a Gift Card from Eleven Sixty Bar and Grill.

We closed our Skills Competition with the LMBL Home Run Derby. Lots of deep shots were recorded
with the almost 20 sluggers coming to the plate.  The winner was the Blue Jays Andrew Mercier.
Andrew also was given a custom bat from HRD BAT Co.

As the sun began to set, the first pitch of the All Star Game was smashed to deep right field by
eventual MVP of Team Red, Joel Rypan (representing the Rays) for an easy standup double. Joel was
gifted a prize pack from Echo Valley for his stellar game play.

The pace and skill of the game was fitting of a playoff game. The eventual winner was Team Blue, taking
down Team Red 7-0, but the game felt strangely closer than the score. Jordan Satchel (representing the
Expos) of Team Blue took MVP honors for the winning team. He was also given a customized Bat from
HRD Bat Co.

The LMBL is about having an outlet for players to continue to play the game they fell in love with as a
kid. Part of the game is about Sportsmanship, and we recognize Jaime Kruspel (of the Red Sox) for his
sportsmanship at the All Star Game and throughout the season. Anderson Craft Ales will be treating him
and his team with a tasting at their facility.

The success of the event could not have happened without the countless volunteers, players, LMBL
executive, the over 100 fans that came to watch.  We also appreciate the support of family members who endure  our players passion for the game each and every Sunday throughout the summer.

Now back to our regularly scheduled games........
