2012 All-Star Rosters Announced

June 11, 2012 - Carolina League (CarL) Winston-Salem Dash

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (JUNE 11, 2012) - The California League and the Carolina League announced their 2012 All-Star Game rosters Monday in advance of the 2012 California-Carolina League All-Star Game, which will take place inside BB&T Ballpark in Winston-Salem Tuesday, June 19. A panel comprised of the league's general managers, skippers and media members voted for this year's participants.

The Carolina League All-Stars will play under the watch of the Winston-Salem Dash's coaching staff. First-year skipper Tommy Thompson will be the team's manager. Pitching coach J.R. Perdew, hitting coach Gary Ward and trainer Cory Barton will join Thompson. Lake Elsinore's coaching staff, led by hitting coach David Newhan, will represent the California League.

All eight Carolina League clubs and 10 California League teams have at least one representative. Four squads-Bakersfield, High Desert, Lake Elsinore and Lynchburg-have a game-high five All-Stars.

This is the 16th California-Carolina League All-Star Game, and the California League leads the all-time series 8-7. The Carolina League has not won since 2008.

BB&T Ballpark will host the Midsummer Classic for the first time. This is the seventh All-Star Game in Winston-Salem history, the most recent coming back in 1993.

Gates open at 3:30 p.m. for batting practice for both leagues. At 6 p.m., select All-Stars will take part in the 2012 Home Run Derby, sponsored by United Airlines. First pitch for the California-Carolina League All-Star Game is set for 7:15 p.m.

The Carolina League roster is available on page two of this press release, while the California League roster can be found on page three.

A limited number of tickets are still available for the 2012 California-Carolina League All-Star Game. For more information or to purchase your seats, visit wsdash.com or call the Dash at (336) 714-2287.
