Otters’ second baseman Javier Brown and catcher Frank Meade have been selected to represent the Western Division as reserves in the All-Star game Wednesday, July 15 in Rockford.
Brown is batting .327 on the year and leads the league in doubles with 14.
“It’s a real honor. I thought I had a chance to make it,” reacted Brown upon hearing the news before Sunday’s game with the Southern Illinois Miners.
Meade is batting .317 and leads the team in home runs with nine. “It’s pretty exciting. If I hadn’t made it, it wouldn’t have been the end of the world, but it’s nice. I just wish we had a few more wins,” he lamented.
It is the first all-star selection for both players in this, their first season in the Frontier League.
