ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Two Central Florida charities have partnered to celebrate senior high school baseball all-stars from Orange and Seminole County at the conclusion of the 2022 spring baseball season.
The Cure All-Stars Baseball Game will be hosted by the Orlando Sports Foundation and the Florida Collegiate Summer League on May 20th & 21st at Sanford Memorial Stadium.
All proceeds from the event will support the two non-profits.
A committee of local coaches will select participants to compete in the two-day event. Baseball players from Orange and Seminole County who achieve excellence in the classroom and on the ball-field will be considered for participation in the special event.
The games will feature player introductions, special first pitch appearances, guest speakers, color guards, national anthem singers, and a Cure All-Stars version of stand-up for cancer tribute that will mirror the Major League Baseball all-star and playoff games stand up.
A live broadcast of the event will also be made available.
“We look forward to working with the Florida Collegiate Summer League and continuing our efforts with Orange and Seminole county coaches and student-athletes to bring teams together to find a cure for cancer,” said Alan Gooch CEO of the Orlando Sports Foundation.
Stefano Foggi, president of the Florida Collegiate Summer League, did not hesitate when the Orlando Sports Foundation expressed an interest in partnering with the league to host the event.
“I realized very quickly that this All-Star game would have the potential to have a major impact beyond the field of play, and that is what our league has been about since its founding in 2004,” Foggi said.
“To partner with a great organization like the OSF to host an event to celebrate senior baseball players in Central Florida and support cancer research is something we are very proud to be a part of.”
Several different sponsorship levels will be available for this event offering local businesses the opportunity to support a great cause as well. For more information, you can contact Stefano Foggi (SFoggi@FloridaLeague.com).
