As I reported earlier, the list for the Florida State All Star game was announced, though at the time, the only name I could find mentioned was Threshers’ pitcher Jesse Biddle.
This afternoon the Threshers announced others who made the All Star team:
The FSL All-Star squads were announced today! Making the team from Clearwater are pitchers Jesse Biddle, Adam Morgan, Austin Wright, along with catcher Cameron Rupp.
Baseball Ross and I said the same thing at the same time….WHAT ABOUT CODY ACSHE AND TYLER KNIGGE????
And being the snarky little thing I am, I posted such a thought right under the announcement on the Threshers’ Facebook page. Surprisingly, they responded:
Asche would likely have been selected were it not for Lakeland 3B Nick Castellanos, who leads the league with a .409 average
Ok, I get that he plays the same position as the guy with the best average in the league, but to Asche’s defense he does have FEWER errors making him a better fielder….so why wasn’t he designated the DH?
*shaking my head*
Well to me, he’s still an all-star.
Congratulations to all who made the team.
