The Jim Beam Amateur All-Star Game featured amazing talent, both young and old, at the Leo Palace Resort baseball field Sunday night, and after much baseball was played, the night ended with smiles and laughs as Team Proa outscored Team Ifit 11-4 in seven innings.

Taking home the MVP honors of the game was Team Proa’s Hank Salas, who finished the friendly match hitting 3-for-4 and two RBI and not to mention, stood on the mound to pitch as well.

“It feels really good to be a part of the league playing the sport I love,” comments Salas after the game, “I came here with a positive attitude, and I’m happy with this season; no downfalls throughout the season, and it’s great playing with these guys before playoffs.”

Both teams displayed much offense from the top of the first inning as Team Ifit set the tone as Jarret Barcinas and Davey Pecha connected well with the ball recording a RBI double and an RBI single, respectively. However, Team Proa wasn’t going to let them go lightly, as Salas, Darren Pablo and Vince Sioco led their team to take a 5-3 lead at the end of the first and they never looked back.

To spark more offense in the game was Team Proa’s Austin McKay, who also displayed his explosiveness with the bat winning the Home Run Derby that was held before the 7 pm game. Mckay went 3-for-3 at the plate and recorded two RBI, and two of those three hits here bombs past third base and to the left side of the field.

“(The All-Star Game) is really good for the sport of baseball, for the competition, and for just getting people out to support the game,” replied McKay when asked how he enjoyed the night’s events, “It means a lot for me to come out and play ball again, especially after being out of the sport for a while. I get to come out and show myself as well as everyone else that I can still play well and being selected here is just icing on the cake.”

With sportsmanship at its finest and a great display of love for the game of baseball, the Jim Beam All-Star Game ended on a successful note and set the tone for the upcoming and highly anticipated playoffs.
