Congrats to the All-Stars

The 2009 NYPL NL All-Star Team will have a very familiar look to Brooklyn fans, thanks to a whopping 10 Cyclones in uniform (and an 11th on the staff as a trainer).

LHP Mark Cohoon, C Dock Doyle, LHP Jim Fuller, 1B Sam Honeck, RHP Michael Powers, and OF Luis Rivera are the six players named to the team. Manager Pedro Lopez, pitching coach Rick Tomlin, hitting coach Jack Voigt, coach Joel Fuentes and trainer Deb Iwanow round out Brooklyn's invasion of State College, PA. Throw in the 30 or 40 staff members we have going to the game, and it's downright ridiculous.

You can read the official release and see all the All-Stars' stats here.

This is the third time we've had our coaching staff at the helm for the ASG, and the third time we've had six players named to the team. But it's the first time it's ever happened since we've had a blog!

When the guys get back from their current trip in Mahoning Valley, I'll try to get one/some of them to weigh in on the blog about the experience of being selected, and maybe give us some updates from throughout the ASG festivities.

Congrats again to all the All-Stars!
