The Valley Blue Sox played hosted the 2018 New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game tonight.
It was at Mackenzie Stadium in Holyoke. The All-Star Game showcases the top collegiate talent in a fun-filled afternoon and evening the league has to offer.
13 NECBL franchises showcased their skills in front of scouts from every Major League Baseball organization.
Michelle Smith Cotto from Longmeadow told 22News she likes supporting the local talent, “I won these at an auction, I volunteer for baypath and there was a raffle. My husband is a big baseball fan, we are red sox fans collectively so i was like alright, it’s good to support the local economy and we couldn’t go to the regular MLB all-star game so this is the next best thing.”
The Blue Sox have hosted the game two times in the last five years.
