COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WZZM) -- It wasn't the West Michigan Whitecaps who took the field at Fifth Third Ballpark Monday afternoon.
Instead, it was the first-ever all-star game for the YMCA inner city youth baseball and softball program.
The players are in 6th through 8th grades. The all-star game was an end-of-season celebration, said volunteer coach William Bryant.
"It gives them the feel of what the players actually go through, the same lineup, the same refreshments," said Bryant. "We're enjoying it. We're superstars tonight."
About 1,900 kids play baseball and softball in the summer program.
The all-star game was hosted by the Whitecaps Community Foundation.
