ToBay to Host Military All-Stars vs. The LI Force High School All-Star Team

Event Tuesday

The Town of Oyster Bay is hosting a special baseball game between the U.S. Military All-Stars and the Long Island Force High School All-Star Team. The two top-tier baseball teams will square off at John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa on Tues., June 25 at 8 p.m. for the 2013 Supervisor’s Trophy.

The U.S. Military All-Stars are an elite baseball team comprised of active duty service members. They play around the nation and are frequently the guests of major league and minor league baseball teams, as well as countless other professional sports franchises. They are outstanding athletes who also have pledged themselves to protect and defend the United States of America. Admission to this contest is FREE.

The most important mission carried out by the U.S. Military All-Stars is to promote the awareness of all Americans in support of the honorable sacrifices our armed forces make at the “Tip of the Spear.” This special event will recognize our United States Military and, at the same time, celebrate the great American pastime of baseball.

For the first time, the U.S. Military All-Stars will play a team of prominent high school all-stars, including many local standouts, thanks to the efforts of Long Island Baseball. Prior to the game, a baseball clinic for local little league players will be conducted by the members of the U.S. Military All-Stars and Long Island Baseball, one of Long Island’s premier baseball academies.

There will also be a homerun derby and a patriotic ceremony recognizing our service men and women prior to the game.
