Charlottesville’s five all-stars are tied with the 2019 team for the second-most in team history (2017, 8). Kory Koehler becomes the second Tom Sox Head Coach to manage the South Division squad, after Corey Hunt had the honors in 2017.

The North squad is comprised of players from Front Royal, New Market, Purcellville, Strasburg, Winchester and Woodstock. The South squad consists of athletes from Charlottesville, Covington, Harrisonburg, Staunton and Waynesboro. Each squad initially included ten pitchers and sixteen position players.

 

The North team will be managed by Woodstock’s Mike Bocock and the South by Charlotteville’s Kory Koehler. Managers of the rosters were determined by the leading teams in the standings at the conclusion of games through Sunday, July 4.

 

Batting practice and autograph/photo sessions for young fans will take place from 3:10-4:45 p.m. The 60 yard dash contest and Home Run Derby will be held between 4:50 p.m. and 7 p.m. Player introductions will be at 7:15 p.m. with first pitch set for 7:30 p.m.
