Fan Voting Open for NECBL All Star Game Final Spot
The North Adams Steeplecats already have four players going to the 2019 NECBL All Star Game this Sunday. Cats fans now have a chance to send another, as fan voting is underway for the final roster spot.
13 players have been nominated by the league for the Fan Vote. The players with the most votes from each division will make the teams. The Steeplecat looking for your vote is outfielder Tre Kirklin. As of Tuesday, Kirklin was batting .301 and leading the team with 17 stolen bases. You can cast your vote here. Voting closes at 11:59 P.M. this Thursday, July 25.
Kirklin is looking to join teammates Nick Payero, Scout Knotts, Matt Koperniak and Joe Porricelli in this Sunday's game at the home of the Vermont Mountaineers, Montpelier Recreation Field. The quartet was included in the Northern Division roster announced Sunday by NECBL Commissioner Sean McGrath. In addition, Steeplecats Head Coach Mike Dailey will guide the North's All Stars, while Martha’s Vineyard’s Jay Mendez will pilot the Southern Stars.
