Some of the best 9-12 year old baseball players in Regina and Moose Jaw will get a chance to show off their talents this weekend on television.
In what is a first, the North Regina Little League, Kiwanis National Little League and Moose Jaw Little League are teaming up for a showcase weekend with 40 kids taking part in a hitting derby Friday night followed by two all-star games on Saturday afternoon which will be shown live on Access 7.
Showcase spokesperson JIm Cozman is looking forward to the event. He says the goal is to give the event a major-league feel while showcasing 40 of the top players in the minor and major league age division.
While this is the first event, Cozman says it is their hope to not only make this an annual event, but one that gets bigger and better each year.
Everything will be happening at Ken McLeod Field in Kiwanis Park at Regina and Montague.
