The President’s Cup 2015 All Star Game took place April 18th inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards. WLOY’s live play by play team of Justin Thomas ’15, Bobby Trosset ’16 and Brendan Peirce ’17 called the game and even had a sit down chat with Baltimore City Council President Jack Young in between the 3rd and 4th innings. We had a problem with our recording at the startup so you’ll be joining the game already in progress for the second inning. The complete audio is below, enjoy!
The President’s Cup aims to unite Baltimore’s youth by using baseball to bring together groups of high school students from different backgrounds that normally would not compete with one another. Practice began Saturday, April 4 the newly renovated Johns Hopkins baseball field with 25 players on each team composed of both public and private schools. The President’s Cup also represents everything Council President’s ongoing P.L.A.Y. (Productive Lives, Active Youth) campaign stands for. P.L.A.Y. provides Baltimore’s youth with a wide range of opportunities to strengthen their self-confidence, develop leadership skills, learn from positive role models, and be rewarded athletically for their academic achievements. P.L.A.Y. encourages them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
