(Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium - Everett, WA) - It might be one of those night's where you remember where you were when you got your first look at a young star before the rest of the baseball world discovered his talents on the diamond.

For the first time in almost a decade, the Northwest League will host an All-Star Game featuring the top players from across the eight-team circuit.

If you were to look at the past few years in the Northwest League, players like Buster Posey, Jurickson Profar, Justin Nicolino and Nate Freiman would have all likely received a call to the midsummer showcase.  

This year, Everett will play host to the 2013 All-Star Game and likely pull out all the stops to re-introduce the All-Star format to those who might not remember the last time the best in the Northwest all got together on one diamond.

Fans looking to head down to Everett, WA on Tuesday, August 6th can contact the Aquasox at www.aquasox.com to purchase seating.  As well, Title Sponsor Tulalip Resort Casino is featuring special rates for those looking to attend the game south of the border.

No date has been set for player selection, but you'll be able to find out first right here at www.canadiansbaseball.com or by following the Vancouver Canadians on Twitter @vancanadians
