Next month, seniors from 25 local high schools will play in the inaugural "Best of the Valley" showcase.

The baseball and softball all-star games are organized by the Shenandoah Valley Baseball-Softball Academy and will be played at James Madison's Veterans Memorial Park June 10.

"For these kids, that's 80 players from around the Valley that can come to James Madison University, enjoy something their senior year to make this a special happening for them," said Mike Bocock, SVB-SA president.

Bocock says college scouts will be in attendance and that the event will hold a skills competition.

Players will also be treated with uniforms.

"It's not unusual to anticipate that this could be the beginning of one of the largest high school all-star softball, baseball games on the east coast and that's what we're driving for," said SVB-SA Director of Marketing Greg Yost.

The softball game starts at 5 p.m. and the baseball game starts at 8 p.m. Gates open at 3 p.m. and tickets are $5.
