MIDLAND — The Fourth Annual North v South High School Baseball All-Star game will feature recent high school graduates and is scheduled for tonight, Thursday, July 12, at Dow Diamond in Midland, home of the Great Lakes Loons. There will be players and coaches representing 26 Mid- Michigan high schools participating in this year’s event.

Chase Matusik will represent Carman- Ainsworth on the mound for the South. Matuisk, a lefty, also played in the 26th annual Bruin Classic All-Star game last month at Whaley Park in Flint. His season stats are unavailable, as no stats or details were reported for Carman- Ainsworth throughout the past season.

Game time for this fourth annual showdown between some of the finest baseball players in the Mid-Michigan area is 6 p.m. at Dow Diamond.

This all-star game is sponsored by the Greater Flint Area Baseball- Softball Association (GFABSA), a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Flint, that provides baseball and softball opportunities for Flint area residents and beyond, for “kids of all ages”, with the goal of fostering sportsmanship, teamwork and skills development.

Fans can call Dow Diamond to reserve tickets at 989-837-Ball (2255).

If you have any questions you may call me at 810-577-9188 (Tom Skinner) or Drew Johnson, GFABSA Commissioner at 810-397-8574.
