The event kicks off with a keynote speech by Cal Ripkin, Jr. (yep, the MLB Hall of Famer!) and, according to John Weaver, it gets even better from there. For a few highlights of what attendees are looking forward to, check out Weaver’s latest blog post.

Though the LaxAllStars team can’t make it to Baltimore this year, we’ll be following the US Lacrosse staff and a handful of attendees via Twitter, Facebook and the US Lacrosse social network.  If there’s one thing US Lacrosse administration has done great this year, it’s building a an online presence – And now we get to take advantage and stay clued in on the action! 

We’ll do our best to keep you informed on what’s happening there, and we’ll share some of the pictures people post.  Next year, we hope to be there covering the entire event and giving readers a reason to keep their web browsers open for 2 days straight.  Until then, thank God for Twitter!
