BABSON PARK, Fla. -- The unofficial start of the University of South Carolina Beaufort's 2014 baseball season is set for Saturday afternoon at Webber International's Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center Field. The Sun Conference All-Star Game will feature 52 of the league's best players and will include members of all 10 of the conference's baseball programs. The game is a showcase for scouts and fans alike to get a look at one of the premier baseball conferences in the NAIA.

Nine all-conference selections from 2013 and seven All-Star Game participants from a year ago will play in Saturday's contest. The conference will be split into two teams, with Embry-Riddle, Southeastern, Thomas (Ga.), USCB and Webber International making up the North squad.
