All-star games are set

With the area high school spring sports season coming to an end — and what a finish it was with area track and field athletes having success in Columbus in their usual numbers, plus Champion’s baseball and softball state championships — it is time to look toward upcoming senior all-star contests.

The Mahoning Valley Scrappers play host to the top area senior baseball players in the fourth annual High School Valley All-Star Classic scheduled for Friday at 5:30 p.m., at Eastwood Field. The event is presented by Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods.

The baseball all-star game will be a Trumbull County vs. Mahoning County format. Tickets are $5 for general admission seats and are available at the Eastwood Field box office.

Finally, the 33rd annual Jack Arvin All-Star Classic football game is scheduled for 7 p.m., June 15 at Hubbard Memorial Stadium. The game is sponsored by the Mahoning Valley Coaches Association and also is a Trumbull vs. Mahoning format.
