Baseball all-stars named

Written by Mike White on .

Rosters have been announced for the annual WPIAL Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Games.

The games are Sunday, June 10 at the Burkett Complex in Robinson Township. Class A will play Class AA at 1 p.m. The second game matches Class AAA and AAAA at 4 p.m.

Eighty players were picked for the games. Hempfield's Cody Dalicandro and Blackhawk's Matt Emge were selected to the games, but can not participate because of prior commitments.

This is a nice event for area baseball, and all players will be honored at a banquet June 8 at the Airport Marriott. The banquet is open to the public. For information, contact Tony Villiotti at 412-429-0546.

The players are listed below, but before we get to those, one piece of news. All WPIAL baseball playoff games scheduled for today have been postponed until tomorrow because of the rain. The quarterfinals are now scheduled for Wednesday.
