Boston City League softball players will have a few more chances to wear their all-star jerseys before summer vacation.

Boston Public Schools assistant chief operating officer Sam Depina has organized a three-game series between the BSA all-stars and the New York City public high school all-stars at Clemente Field in the Fenway, with the first game set for tomorrow at 10 a.m.

The second game will follow at noon, and the all-stars will play a third Saturday at 10:30 a.m.

According to Depina, the series was set up as three games to ensure that all players on each team would get equal playing time and so that the New York City all-stars could enjoy a full visit in Boston.

The two all-star teams will enjoy a Duck Tour Friday, as well as a reception dinner at Presidents Golf Course in Quincy.
