BUNCH OF YOUNG ALL-STARS REPRESENTED
THE ROTAN LEAGUE IN NEW YORK


July 6, 2002
Many of this years All-Star team has never had a chance to play on the leagues All-Star team. Even thou many of them have played in the league for years. But this year they will get a chance to go to New York to play. Then again play in the leagues All-Star game here on Friday Night July 12, 2002. Preliminary told the league that to many of their players had made plans to be away over the 4th. of July weekend and they would not be able to play in the New York game on July 6th. So Anthony's #2 the team that won the league in 2000 will get the chance to play the New York Champs. Most of the Anthony's #2 team will not play in the all-star game in New York so that the other teams players will get more of a chance to play......

Please Note: As it turned out no players represented Preliminary or Regans for this game. This team was ridiculed and put down on the forum as the worst bunch of players that the league could send.
