The Inaugural Turkey Stearnes Classic is an event scheduled on the new federal Juneteenth holiday (June 20, 2022 this year), featuring the top high school minority underclass baseball players in Michigan competing in an All-Star game, a home run hitting contest and a showcase. There is nothing else like this in southeastern Michigan that provides the opportunity for juniors and sophomores to shine a light on their baseball skills.
