So Cal All Star roster named for exhibition matchup against USA and Mexico
“Getting this opportunity to work with USA Softball, Tony Rico, Marty Tyson and along with these great kids that have put so much time into their careers is special,” said Mike Stith, who will be leading the So Cal All-Stars. “For me as a coach to get to be a small part of the development of our National Team Program is an incredible honor as we begin the process to prepare for Japan and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Getting to coach against some of the greatest talent in the world is quite an opportunity as much as it is a tough challenge against Team USA and Mexico but it will be a great night that I’m truly looking forward to.”
