TCL Kick-Off Classic Tomorrow

TCL Kick-Off Classic

The first Texas Collegiate League game of the season, the inaugural TCL Kick-Off Classic presented by Marler Ford, will played tomorrow, May 29th, at Bringhurst Field in Alexandria, LA.

The game will culminate an All-Star Baseball Weekend in Alexandria, as Bringhurst Field will host the Louisiana High School Coaches’ All-Star Games tonight and tomorrow afternoon.
 
The Kick-Off Classic presented by Marler Ford will be a showcase game for the top prospects of the TCL. The pre-game festivities will begin around 4:00pm. The players will display their talents for major league scouts in a combine-type setting, running the 60-yard dash and participating in infield-outfield drills to showcase their defensive skills. The pre-game festivities will culminate in a home run derby around 6:15pm. The game itself, which will begin at 7:30pm, is essentially a pre-season All-Star Game, with the South team led by Aces’ head coach Mike Byrne and the North team led by Marshals’ head coach Roland Fanning.
