SASL ALL STARS: 

The concept of drafting SASL All Stars into two teams was derived from the NBA All Star Game. What a treat it was to have the captains strategize and draft accordingly. The captains were chosen based on which team was at the top of the standings in each league. Charley Robinson of Savages will captain Team Red and Prince Panicker of Scoobies Force will captain Team Blue.

 

The SASL All Star game will be played under regular SASL rules at Cantiague C. All Star shirts

Wil be provided to each participant. Some changes to the All Star game that both teams have agreed to:

 

-No Home Run Limit (it is an exhibition game after all)

-9 inning game

-Solyman Najimi will be the umpire
