Photo by Joe Crawford MIDLAND — The Fourth Annual North v South High School Baseball All-Star game will feature recent high school graduates and is scheduled for 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.

North Branch’s Kaden Maynard was the only baseball player in all of Lapeer County that was selected to either of the teams. Maynard was a standout pitcher in a solid pitching rotation for the Broncos this season, putting in a solid effort that led the Broncos to a 15-16 record that saw North Branch advance all the way to the district finals. Not only was Maynard key to the pitching effort, Maynard also made a great impact on the offensive effort, racking up many multi-hit games.

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.
