Friend of the podcast Andrew Can (Aladdin) gives us the inside scoop about the Broadway Softball League All-star Game, which was hosted today at Central Park's Heckscher Ballfields.
The All-Star game is a lot of fun. I've played on it in the past. Every team in the league gets to send a guy and a gal of their choosing. Sometimes the teams take a vote. Sometimes a team's manager will just select two people to go. There's no rule that I'm aware of. Usually, the people chosen tend to be good players and good people who are positive representations of their team and their show.
There are 3 games on All-Star day: "The Legends Game," which is for the older players; "The Women's Game," which is pretty self-explanatory; and "The Co-Ed All-Star Game," which is errbody in the club.
All-Star Day usually ends up being a bit more intense than regular season, if only because most of the All-Star players have a bit more experience and a stronger grasp of the game and the rules. It's fun, though, and neat in the fact that you get to meet and play on a team with players against whom you've been competing all season. Whether it's regular season, play-offs, or All-Star Day, it's always special time out in the sun with family and friends of the Broadway community.
