The Frank Varischetti All-Star game is the last showcase game left standing , but with some changes.
According to a media release, the game will go on without fan attendance.
‘We must adhere to all the guidance and guidelines in effect in order to protect the health and safety of everyone involved,’ Game Manager Nick Hoffman said in the release.
“Unfortunately, those guidelines require limiting attendance to pre-authorized individuals only: players, coaches, event staff and other essential game-related personnel. No one else can be admitted.”
Players will take the field on Aug. 7 at Frank Varischetti field in Brockway. Sixteen players will still receive $1,000 college scholarships provided by the game’s sponsors.
