Southern League All Star game coming up

One of my first blog posts, and one of the most widely viewed (due to internet searches for Madison Bumgarner), was about my trip to the South Atlantic League (Single-A) All Star game in Greensboro, NC a few weeks ago. Well, North Carolina baseball fans are truly lucky this summer because the Southern League (Double-A) All Star game will be held in Zebulon, home of the Carolina Mudcats, on this coming Monday, July 14. Of course, I will be in attendance watching some of the brightest prospects in baseball.

The Mudcats have announced that there will be a pre-game autograph session. If it’s anything like the one in Greensboro, I’ll have any chance to get autographs from any and all of the All Star players. Some of the best prospects who will be there include Wade Davis (Rays), Alcides Escobar (Brewers), Chris Coghlan (Marlins), Donald Veal (Cubs), and James McDonald (Dodgers). You can see the entire rosters here. If any of my readers are interested in getting an autograph from a specific player or players, just let me know before Monday and I’ll try to get them for you. Mario and Tatiana, you’ll definitely have some autographs from the Marlins prospects coming your way.
