Some of the older players said it was all about having a good time.

"Going out there, fly balls hit. Go catch them and just have fun with it," said Noah Schafer, with the Sacred Heart Academy.

On June 20, the Midwest League All-Start Game took place. Gates opened at 4 p.m. with the first pitch thrown at 7:05 p.m.

Hundreds of people went to Dow Diamond on Tuesday to meet some of the players and watch them get ready for the big game.

"Best players of the Midwest League. It's pretty cool," said Jack Sczepanski, fan. "You know, it's pretty cool to see them before they go pro. Especially from the Loons, like Clayton Kershaw."

The players said it is an honor for them to be a part of the All Star Game. For them, it's a unique opportunity to learn from the best players in the league.
