Oconto Falls’ Mitchell Manns is among the senior baseball players who will play in high school all-star games Sunday at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton.

Manns is a member of Team Gray, which will play Team White around 3:30 p.m.

The game will be the second of three played during the day. Team Cardinal will take on Team Black at 1 p.m. The winning teams from the first two games will play again around 6 p.m.

“It’s very special to get the spot and be able to play one more time, because we didn’t really have a season this year,” said Manns, who also plans to play the sport at UW-Stevens Point.

An all-day, general admission pass will be available for $5. Fans will be asked to socially distance within the stadium.

The parking lot will open at 11 a.m., with free parking. The field will open at noon, and concessions will be available during the games.

“We’re thankful for the sponsors who have stepped up to provide this great opportunity for many of the local top high school baseball talent to play the final game of their high school careers,” said Aaron Hahn, vice president of the Timber Rattlers, in a press release. “We’re excited to host these games and look forward to seeing fans in the stands for baseball once again.”

Passes may be purchased in advance through this link at the Timber Rattlers website or at the Neuroscience Group Field Box Office during its regular business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Thursday and Friday or Sunday afternoon before the game.
