MINK Collegiate Baseball League

M.I.N.K Collegiate Summer Baseball League All Star Game

3rd Annual MINK League All-Star Game
July 6, 2017
Chillicothe, MO

A big "Thank You" to the Chillicothe Mudcats for hosting the 2017 MINK League All-Star Game. The day started with a scout day where MINK League players had the chance to work out in front of Major League Baseball scouts. One of the fan favorites, the Home Run Derby, was won by Kale Emshoff of the Clarinda A's, and in the main event of the evening we saw the MINK South All-Stars pick up a 6-4 win over the MINK North All-Stars.
