Abby Mocaby rocks SI Select Softball game

Abbi Mocaby of Du Quoin was chosen to play in this year's SI Select Softgame game, an exhibition game featuring the best prep softball players from southern Illinois.

The game was played at Rent One Park, and was rescheduled from June 21 to July 5, after the park's lights failed to turn on on June 21. The event was free to spectators.

Mocaby turned out to be one of the stars of the game ... she won a $1,000 scholarship from Pepsi618. Of all the competitors, Mocaby came closest to the plate when throwing the ball in from the outfield.

The Black Team defeated the White Team by a score of 11-6, but it was more about the girls playing and having fun than about the score. No official book was kept on the game.
