Interesting study done by the NCAA. This definitely has a local impact: just as we see a decline in youth participation across the country with a correlation of participation locally there is a certainly a relation with the decline of NCAA officials to the umpires that provide service to the GSBL.

GSBL ALL-STAR GAME RETURNS TO HOLMAN STADIUM
THURSDAY, JUNE 27TH @ 7PM
Blue All-Stars top the Black All-Stars 8-6 in the "147th" (per Troy) annual All-Star Game.
The Blue All-Stars jumped to an early 4-0 lead after the 1st inning on an error and a Muskrats' Mike Smith 2-run double. They added another 2-runs on in the 2nd inning on Red Sox Gauss base hit that plated 2 more. The Blue All-Stars increased their lead to 8 with 2 more in the 4th inning on an outfield miscue that led to an Phillies' Steve Auger scoring all the way around the bases.
Trailing 8 zip after 4 innings, the Black All-Stars started to mount their comeback. They tacked on a run in the 5th inning after Black Sox Mike Lacasse got the Black All-Stars' first hit of the game and scored on the Eagles' Ray Roman groundout to first. They added 2 more in the 7th inning on Braves' Andrew Riotto's double and Eagles' Nate Marshall's single.
Down 8-4 in the final frame, Black All-Stars scored 3 more times on Eagles' Anyelo Roman driving home Roman, then then back-to-back sac flies from the Braves' Joe Gallant and Blue Jays' Kevin Veilleux. However their furious comeback was halted on the next batter as the Blue All-Stars got the final out to secure the victory.
W: Muskrats' Jake Kleckner
L: Eagles' Anyelo Roman
MVP: Phillies' Steve Auger: 4-4, 2B, 2 runs and 2 RBIs
Muskrats' Mike Smith 1-2 2-run double in 1st
