Seniors represent West in BNBA Classic All-Star Games

The Bloomington Normal Baseball Association provided an opportunity for this year’s graduating seniors to represent their  high schools once last time on the baseball field.  The seniors from the Intercity and Area high schools were divided into four teams to play two 7-inning games.  And it only seemed fitting given this year’s season that the teams had to overcome a lengthy weather delay!

Both Intercity teams came out on top in the end.  Check out The Pantagraph article for highlights from the evening.

A few photos from the night….
