The GBL and NoL are two of the most successful and heavily scouted independent leagues in the country and together had over 30 of their players from 2009 acquired by major league organizations.

Although these two leagues, of the seven independent minor leagues in the nation, total less than 25% of all independent teams they produced five of the top ten Baseball America Top Indy Prospects in 2009 including the first three spots.  In addition the Baseball American Independent League Player of the Year has come from one of these two leagues 7 of the 13 years the award has been in existence including two of the last three.

"This will be exciting for our players and fans and also for major league organizations focused on finding the best talent available in the independent minor leagues," said Golden Baseball League Commissioner Kevin Outcalt.

"The Northern League has long been the finest independent professional baseball league and we are looking forward to hosting their top players in Tucson this summer and then sending our best to the Chicago area for the rematch the following season."

The game will be streaming live on the internet, broadcasted live on Toros Flagship radio station and most stations throughout the states and Canada that host teams represented in this event.
