Former American League Most Valuable Player Jose Canseco will face off against four California high school sluggers Wednesday before the independent San Rafael (Calif.) Pacifics game.

Canseco will face Angelo Zorn (San Rafael), Henry Zeisler (Redwood), Nick Roth (Drake) and Parker Rey (Terra Linda).

“This is going to be an incredibly unique experience for these high school players, and hopefully they’ll enjoy it as much as our fans will,” Pacifics president and general manager Mike Shapiro said.

Each participant will receive two minutes to hit as many home runs as possible. The top two will move to the finals and get another two minutes.

Canseco also will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, the Pacifics said.
