Rosters for the 2012 Eastern League All-Star Game were announced today, and for the second straight year, five Harrisburg Senators made the squad:
• LHP Danny Rosenbaum
• RHP Kevin Pucetas
• 2B Jeff Kobernus
• OF Eury Perez
• OF Chris Rahl
The 2012 game, officially known as the Baseballtown All-Star Classic, will be played at the Reading Phillies home stadium on Wednesday, July 11th.
For the 28-year-old Rahl, this is his third All-Star game nomination, having represented Mobile in the 2009 Southern League All-Star game and Lancaster in the 2006 California-Carolina League All-Star game while a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks organization.
This the second staight All-Star nod for Kobernus, who was named as an alternate to Destin Hood for the 2011 California-Carolina League All-Star game. Rosenbaum is also making his second trip to a midseason exhibition, having represented Hagerstown in the 2010 South Atlantic League All-Star game. Likewise, this appears to be the second All-Star nod for Pucetas, who represented San Jose in the 2008 California-Carolina League All-Star game as a member of the San Francisco Giants organization.
Finally, this is the first All-Star honors for Eury Perez since coming to the United States in 2009 (note: the GCL has no All-Star Game).
