The three-day event will be held at Mendon High School, Mendon Center Elementary, Thornell Road Elementary and Calkins Road Middle School.

Prospective college players will participate in two “all-star” games on Saturday at Thornell Farm Park, instructed by college coaches, officials said. The first game begins at 7 p.m. and the second game starts at 8 p.m.

This year the Sweetlax Invitational is partnering with Impact Earth Inc.—a zero-waste company—to make the event more sustainable. Impact Earth will be setting up zero-waste education stations at all field locations, officials said.
