Madisonville’s Graham Hackbarth was named the game’s MVP after leading the West 17 hit attack with three singles. Hoptown’s MJ Rookard had two hits in three at bats with fellow Hoppers Blake Jackson going 2-3 and Cole Cummings adding a hit in three tries.
Paul Haupt of Henderson was the East’s leading hitter going 2-3. Paducah’s Caleb Reinhardt was the pitching winner for the West while Luke Fitton of Dubois County was the loser for the East.
Sid Kumar of Owensboro won the Home Run Derby with four out of the park with Hoptown’s Blake Jackson going yard twice.
