Six Winnipeg Goldeyes players have been named to this year’s American Association All-Star Game.
Position players Luis Alen, Casey Haerther, Tyler Kuhn, Ryan Pineda and Donnie Webb will be joined by pitcher Chris Kissock in the all-star game, which takes place at Shaw Park on Tuesday, July 29.
“Having six of our own players in the game will only add to the excitement surrounding the 2014 Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries All-Star Game and Celebrations,” Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier said. “All six players are very deserving of the honour and I am sure our fans will enjoy watching them play in the game in our home park.”
The Goldeyes join the Wichita Wingnuts with six players selected to the game, which is the most of any team.
The all-star celebrations begin on Monday, July 28 with the fanfest and skills competition at Shaw Park. Tuesday, July 29 will feature the all-star luncheon with Fergie Jenkins, all-star skills camp and American Association All-Star Game.
