PRESS RELEASE – Following the highly-heralded 2011 West Coast League All-Star Game in Corvallis, Oregon, the 2012 WCL All-Star Game will be held at Borleske Stadium in Walla Walla, Washington.

“Everyone was pleased with the job the Corvallis Knights did in presenting the 2011 All-Star Game”, said league president Ken Wilson.  “The huge crowd enjoyed the game, 24 Major League Scouts were there, and it’s clear the All-Star Game will be a big part of our West Coast League season for many years to come.”

The West Coast League has held four All-Star Games, starting in Wenatchee in 2006.  The 2007 game was played in Bellingham, while Moses Lake hosted the 2008 contest.  The 2011 All-Star Game in Corvallis marked the return of the game following a two-year hiatus.

“Walla Walla is excited to be selected to host the 2012 WCL All-Star Game”, said Walla Walla Sweets general manager Zachary Fraser.  “We look forward to building on the incredibly successful event that Corvallis staged this week, and will welcome the baseball world to our town for what will be a wonderful showcase.”

The 2012 WCL All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 24th.

The West Coast League All-Star Game features the stars of the season and the top professional prospects in the league.  Players are selected by fan voting, Major League Baseball scouts, and voting by league coaches.
