All-star games set for Connell Park

The Lackawanna vs. Luzerne Baseball and Softball Senior All-Star Games are scheduled as a Thursday doubleheader on adjacent fields at Connell Park in Scranton.

The baseball game will get things started at 5 p.m. Softball is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Prior to the pandemic canceling the 2020 season, the Lackawanna League and Wyoming Valley Conference had met in the Field of Dreams senior all-star baseball series at PNC Field in Moosic. The Field of Dreams was not resumed this season.

There had not been a similar all-star contest pitting the separate leagues in softball.

The Dallas Kiwanis Club recently conducted its 41st Robert L. Dolbear Wyoming Valley Conference Senior Softball All-Star Game.

The Thursday doubleheader, which is being presented by 570 Sports Show LLC, is being billed as the two primary counties, Lackawanna and Luzerne, against each other, but it does include recent graduates of Lackawanna League and Wyoming Valley Conference schools from outside those two counties as well.

Admission charge is $5 for 12-and-under and $10 for others.

A Most Valuable Player will be selected for both teams in each game.
