New in 2021 was the Festival All-Star List! Athletes in were selected by umpires based off of good sportsmanship, teamwork and skill during the Festival. At the conclusion of each game, an athlete was identified from each team and at the end of the event, the athlete with the most tallies from each team was awarded the All-Star pick. This individual is a representative of each club/team, not the most valuable player.
