The YSN Baseball All-Star Game will once again take place under the bright lights of Bob Cene Park on Saturday, June 25th at 7pm. Cene Park will showcase over 50 schools and uniforms on the field in the same night, which is an honor that no other game can claim stake to.
The YSN Softball All-Star game will take place this summer as well (date TBA) at Youngstown State University. The Ladies will have one more chance to represent their school on the area’s biggest stage!
In both cases, as YSN always does; the All-Star Games will focus on a deserving foundation and/or local business that inspires change, and major impact directly in our area- and for this particular set of events YSN is partnering with Project MKC to assist in awareness and benefitting the local organization.
“We are pleased to be partnering with YSN who does such a fantastic job highlighting our local athletes in the Mahoning Valley,” said Project MKC’s Justin Coffin “Loyal, Local, and Live are key attributes to YSN’s mission and success and at Project MKC our mission is to make the lives of children and their families a little brighter by focusing on their individual needs with the help of volunteers. These missions are both a solid partnership because of both of our organization’s belief of kids in our area!”
Project MKC our main program is our diaper bank which distributes over 80,000 diapers a month and roughly a million diapers per year along with wipes and other essentials. We distribute 1,200 comfort kits a year to children in foster care throughout 10 counties in Northeast Ohio.
“We’re once again honored to have our local student-athletes represent their schools in this showcase. While it’s always important to shine a light on the talent on the field, it’s awesome to see these young men and women make an immediate impact locally,” said YSN Founder/Owner, DJ Yokley. “Project MKC is a perfect example of a mission that continues to contribute to area families with no strings attached. They’ve affected more families than they’ll ever understand, and if we can help be a small part of helping in that mission- it’s the least we can do.”
This will be the second year for the events, and all proceeds of ticket sales will benefit Project MKC.
