BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Five members of the Birmingham Barons made it to the all-star team and will be playing in the 2018 Southern League All-Star game tonight.
In preparation for the big event, the Barons hosted several events around the city. Last night, all-star players gathered at the Negro Southern League Museum for a meet and greet with fans. They gave out autographs and took pictures.
Barons all-star catcher Zack Collins says he always looks forward to meeting fans.
“I’ve done a couple since being a pro – did one in the fall league and one last year in the all-star game,” Collins said. “It’s always fun when are you doing bad or good it’s a good experience,”
The all-star game will begin at 7 p.m. at Regions Field.
