MIAMI – More than 120 of the best players in Miami-Dade and Broward counties will take the field at loanDepot park on Thursday, June 3 for the 10th annual High School Baseball Network (HSBN) | Miami Marlins Senior All-Star Games.

The second game will pit the Broward Public School Senior All-Stars vs the Miami-Dade Public School Senior All-Stars. The All-Stars will be playing in front of family and friends.
“There is no better way for the HSBN Miami-Dade and Broward Senior All-Stars to close out their season than with a memory that will stay with them for a lifetime,” said Sarah Garcia, Marlins Director of Foundation & Community Initiatives. “As their hometown MLB ballpark, loanDepot park is the perfect setting to host the final game for the counties’ best players. With our partners at HSBN, we are happy to be hosting the South Florida baseball community again at our ballpark as these events have become a staple for the student-athletes.”
“We have worked extremely hard with the Marlins to make it a priority to bring these senior all-star games back this season,” said HSBN Co-Founder Anthony Uttariello. “While COVID has presented many challenges over the past year, we feel that honoring these seniors and sending them off with a memory of a lifetime represents a small step in emerging from this pandemic. We are excited that this year’s senior all-stars will continue the tradition of playing their final game down at loanDepot park.”
