"Our owners decided to reinstate this great showcase event," said WCL president Ken Wilson in making the announcement. "It's terrific for our players, and the fans in Corvallis are deserving of an event of this magnitude."

"We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded the West Coast League All-Star Game," said Corvallis Knights team president Dan Segel.  "This is a special opportunity to bring together the best of the WCL, and bring community together, and it's an opportunity to showcase our fine city and its surrounding areas."

A home run derby featuring the WCL's top sluggers will be held prior to the game. Immediately following the All-Star Game fans will enjoy a spectacular fireworks show.

The West Coast League previously held All-Star Games in Wenatchee (2006), Bellingham (2007) and Moses Lake (2008). The inaugural All-Star Game hosted by the AppleSox in 2006 was a memorable event. A crowd of 1,083 at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium watched current major league pitcher Marc Rzepczynski of the Toronto Blue Jays and infielder Eric Sogard of the Oakland A's appear in the game that ended in a 6-6 tie.

Wenatchee skipper Ed Knaggs coached the East All-Stars which featured Tom Milone, Nick Haughian, and Hawkins Gebbers from the AppleSox, who are all current pros. The festivities also included special appearances by former Mariner John Olerud and legendary Washington State baseball coach Bobo Brayton.
