Tom Redington, Esperanza High School shortstop, and Bret Boone, El Dorado second baseman, will lead the North in the 20th Orange County All-Star baseball game at 7:30 tonight in Anaheim's Glover Stadium.
Redington was named the most valuable player in the California All-Star baseball series in San Diego last weekend. He was recently drafted in the second round by the Atlanta Braves and has been reportedly offered a $100,000 signing package.
Redington led Esperanza into the Southern Section's 4-A division championship game for the second straight year. He hit .366 with 9 home runs and 30 RBIs and has signed a national letter of intent with the University of Arizona.
Boone, son of Angel catcher Bob Boone, has been drafted by the Minnesota Twins but has declined a professional contract and said he would play at USC next fall. He hit .500 with 10 homers and 31 RBIs.
