Prep baseball all-stars play today

The fourth annual Mid-Atlantic All-Star Baseball Classic games will be played today at Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown.

The Senior Stars game begins at 1 p.m., followed by the MABC Elite Game at 4.

Complete rosters for all four teams are listed below.

The Elite game will feature numerous committed Division I players including Brady Wilson (Frederick High School, committed to West Virginia), Branden Kline (Thomas Johnson, Virginia), Chris Cook (DeMatha, George Mason), Mike Twigg (Berkeley Springs, West Virginia), Josh Conway (Smithsburg, Coastal Carolina), Justin Albright (Catoctin, George Washington), Rob Malan (Potomac Falls, VCU) and Chris Taylor (Dominion, Rider) to name a few.

Clear Spring's Mark Shives will coach the American Elite All-Stars, while 1999 Clear Spring graduate Matt Michael, manager of Century High School, will coach the National Elite All-Stars.

Mark Rotruck, father of the late Andrew Rotruck, will throw out the first pitch in the Elite game. Andrew died last September in an automobile accident. He played in the event last season after concluding his career at Jefferson. Mark, a Jefferson assistant, also coached Andrew in last season's event.
