Jeff Corean: "Joined by Mr. Brett Lang. This is year is going to be the inaugural Baseball and Softball Big Country FCA All-Star games. What went into the decision to go ahead and expand and allow softball and baseball to be a part of the All-Star Games?"
Brett Lang: "Abilene started the All-Star festival for football back in 2000, they added girls basketball in 2009 and about two years ago the decision was made to add boys basketball and volleyball. They put the two basketball games in Brownwood on Thursday night of this week, added softball and baseball this year on the middle day, Friday, and then the football and volleyball games are in Abilene on Saturday."
Jeff: "You have Brownwood, Abilene, and San Angelo, is there going to be a rotation every year to where it's going to be at a different spot or is set for every sport?"
Brett: "It's going to be set because of the venues and situation. We'll leave it like it is and play the softball and baseball here in San Angelo every year. Looking forward to it."
Jeff: "What do you think it brings to the city of San Angelo to be able to host events like this and even Brownwood and Abilene?"
Brett: "There's been a lot of excitement, it's really been pretty awesome. People are calling, I've talked more on the phone in the last week than I have in three years before that asking questions about the All-Stars and the kids, parents calling to say where is it and what's going on. Trying to text them and e-mail them and keep them up to date with all the information. It's really been a cool three days."
