Corey Ray (Farmers) and Grayson Long (Plowboys) face off on Thursday. The series will wrap up with Hayden Howard (Farmers) and Matt Kent (Plowboys) taking the mound on Friday.
The rest of the Farmers roster includes Ryne Birk, Krey Bratsen, Kaylor Chafin, Jason Freeman, Kaleb Goodell, Cole Lankford, Patrick McLendon, Hunter Melton, J.B. Moss, Logan Nottebrok, Ty Schlottman, Troy Stein, Gandy Stubblefield and Andrew Vinson.
The Plowboys roster includes Blake Allemand, Nick Banks, Nick Choruby, Mark Ecker, Ronnie Gideon, Ryan Hendrix, Rex Hill, G.R. Hinsley, Jason Jester, Patrick Michon, Jonathan Moroney, Mitchell Nau, Jace Statum and Ty Stubblefield and Logan Taylor.
