High school baseball playoffs in the Metroplex are over, but a select group of local players will don their school colors one final time in the upcoming North Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Game, which will take place Monday, June 9 at 7 p.m. at Dallas Baptist University’s Horner Ballpark.

Mansfield Summit coach Chris Peacock is the president of the group, and played a key role in planning the event – the 11th time the game has been held.

“They’ve got such a nice facility and a great ballpark there at Dallas Baptist. They were really eager to host it,” he said.

The teams will be split into West and East squads, setting up a de facto Dallas versus Fort Worth feel for the game.

“It’s really, really good baseball,” Peacock said. “We have great baseball in North Texas and a lot of really good players. You’re going to watch some really high-level baseball and watch some guys that are moving on to the next level.”

Saginaw Boswell coach Steve Foster will manage the West team, and is looking forward to his first opportunity to coach in the event.

“I’m very excited about it. It’s a chance to coach some of the best kids in the Metroplex,” he said. “Of course everybody wants to win, but we’re going to be there to let everybody play and let everybody enjoy the experience. That’s main thing we’re there for. Hopefully, we will win, but the experience is the main thing.”
