Game three showcased all of the athletes talents, but three players stood out from the rest. The three Elite Players of the Game were #20 Corey Dempster(OF) of Loyola HS, #16 Cody Nulph (INF) of Orange Lutheran HS, andCortlan Cox of Alta Loma HS. Dempster was 1 for 3 on the day with a deep Home Run shot to left field.Nulph was 1 for 1 with a double, walk and an RBI. He also made an excellent run saving catch at second base late in the contest. Cox threw three scoreless innings for the Black Team, after trading teams.
