AXEMEN SEND THREE TO NCABL ALL STAR GAME

Posted July 14, 2017


AXEMEN SEND THREE TO NCABL ALL STAR GAME
This season marks the North Central Alberta Baseball League's 50th season of operation and the July 16 All Star Game is being billed as the biggest yet in celebration.
 
NCABL Commissioner Paul Riopel has planned a full afternoon of entertainment for baseball fans at the majestic Legion Memorial Ballpark in St Albert. Picnic games, live music from local rock legends Mouring Wood and the All Star Game itself are part of the celebration. 
 
Pitcher Kyle Muzechka 
 
The marquee attraction for the afternoon will be of course the All Star Game itself which will feature top baseball players from around the league. One team will be managed by Brett McEroy of the Sherwood Park Athletics and be made up of the Athletics, the Edmonton Primeaus, Camrose Axemen and Sturgeon Paladins while the second team will have Stony Plain manager Brad Walde at the helm of a team comprised of the Mets, Westlock Red Lions, St Albert Cardinals and Edmonton Athletics.
 
Pitcher Shawn Noble
 
The Camrose Axemen will be represented by first baseman Joe Pasychnyk and pitchers Shawn Noble and Kyle Muzechka. Both Pasychnyk and Noble will be making their first appearance at the annual NCABL All Star Game with 2017 being Muzechka's third selection to the All Star team having previously played in 2012 and 2015.

Absent from the 2017 NCABL All Star Game will be the perennial pennant and Championship contender Edmonton Blackhawks. The Blackhawks instead will be hosting their Blue Willow Invitational Tournament, a decision that meant they would not be allowed to participate in the All Star Game at the request of league governors. When the Blackhawks refused or were unable to change the date of their non-league sanctioned tournament the league and its governors unanimously agreed to enact the consequence of not having Blackhawk players on the All Star ballot. 
 
It is a loss for the NCABL, which will see one of the league's best franchises over the last few seasons not participate in the All Star Game. It is also a bad look for the Blackhawks, a NCABL team since 2005 and four time NCABL champions, to not be available for a league wide event, that was originally scheduled in the Fall of 2016. An already seemingly rocky relationship between the Blackhawks and the NCABL got a bit more rocky this season.
 
The ordeal was featured on a recent edition of Circling the Bases with Earl Thompson which can be found by clicking the link below;
 
 
A big crowd is expected for the All Star Game, so fans are encouraged to head down to the ball park just a little bit earlier to make sure they can get a great seat for the action.
