VBL All Star Game in Front Royal
The Valley Baseball League All Star Game will be held on Sunday at Bing Crosby Stadium in Front Royal.
The All Star Game festivities had previously been held at Veterans Memorial Park in Harrisonburg.
The town will welcome fans from around the area and college baseball players from around the country for the game and contests.
The Front Royal Cardinals will be represented by Bryce Fisher, Sean Means, Drew Camp, and Trent Jeffcoat.
Jo Jo Jackson will participate in the Home Run Derby as well as the All Star Game.
The first event is a 60 yard dash contest starting at 2:30.
Next is batting practice from 3:00-4:30 followed by the Home Run Derby at 5:00.
An autograph session will be hosted after the Derby.
Before first pitch at 6:55 pm, the Valley Baseball League’s Hall of Fame class of 2022 will be recognized.
Light pole falls on Bridgeforth Field
As a result of the storms on Wednesday, a wooden light pole fell onto a fence at the newly renovated Bridgeforth Field.
The pole fell on the third base side of the field and missed the batting cages that were a part of those renovations.
The issue forced the Royals to swap Thursday’s home game and a future home game with the Purcellville Cannons.
Saturday’s game against the Front Royal Cardinals was moved up from 7 pm to 5 pm.
All future home games expected to start at an earlier time until the light pole is fixed.
Little League Night at the Bing
The Front Royal Cardinals are hosting Little League Night this evening at Bing Crosby Stadium.
Gate open at 5:30 with activities and vendors ready to roll until first pitch at 7 pm.
Admission is free thanks to Green to Ground Electrical Services and is a great way to support the Cardinals and Front Royal Little League.
Little Leaguers are encouraged to wear their uniforms and will get to run on the field with the players before the game.
The Cardinals enter the game with a 5-6 record on the season and face the Woodstock River Bandits who are off to a decent start at 8-5.
