NNU Varsity Extra: Rosters, date set for state all-star baseball gameSeptember 5, 2018
The annual Idaho Baseball Coaches Association’s Treasure Valley vs. State Showcase Game is set for 12:15 p.m. Sunday at Northwest Nazarene University, and the organization announced rosters for the all-star game Tuesday.
High school coaches nominated players to the event, and the final rosters were picked by scouts, college coaches, the Idaho Baseball Coaches Association staff and high school coaches throughout the state.
The weekend starts with a workout for college and pro scouts at 2 p.m. Saturday at NNU for the first time in the event’s history. Justin Schneidt, president of the coaches’ association, said he plans to rotate the showcase and scout workouts in future years to The College of Idaho, Treasure Valley Community College, Lewis-Clark State College and the College of Southern Idaho.
The all-star game follows Sunday and will last nine innings or longer to get every pitcher into the game.
Rocky Mountain leads the Treasure Valley roster with five selections, and Highland tops the State roster with five of its own players. See complete rosters below.
