Kuhn, Remenowsky selected to SAL Northern Division All Star Team

June 8, 2009 - South Atlantic League (SAL) - Kannapolis Cannon Ballers News Release

KANNAPOLIS, NC - The Kannapolis Intimidators will have three representatives on the field at the South Atlantic League All Star Game on June 23 in Charleston, West Virginia. Tyler Kuhn was selected as the Northern Division's starting leftfielder, while closer Dan Remenowksy will be a part of the bullpen. Manager Ernie Young was also selected to be a member of the squad's coaching staff.

Kuhn, 22, is leading the Intimidators in a number of offensive categories, including hitting (.315), RBIs (25) and stolen bases (17). The Louisville-native was named South Atlantic League Player of the Week on Monday for June 1-7 in the lead up to his All Star selection.

Kuhn was a member of the Pioneer League All Star team in 2008 as a member of the Great Falls Voyagers. He was selected in the 15th round of the 2008 draft out of West Virginia University.

Remenowksy, 23, has been a force in the bullpen this season but has only recently taken over the Intimidators closer role. The right-hander out of Cincinnati is 3-3 with a 2.49 ERA and also has eight saves. Remenowsky has struck out 38 batters in 21 2/3 innings and has walked just four.

Ernie Young will serve as an assistant coach for the Northern Division squad. Young is in his first season of managing after an 18 year playing career and a season as the hitting coach in Great Falls.

Young will be coaching alongside the Northern Division All Star manager Dusty Wathan of Lakewood. Young and Wathan were teammates with the Buffalo Bisons in 2004 and 2005.

Kannapolis had just one All Star representative in 2008, when pitcher Henry Mabee was selected to the Southern Division squad.
