Smokies 2011 All-Star Selections

Twelve members of the 2011 Tennessee Smokies roster were named Tuesday by the Southern League of Professional Baseball Clubs to the 2011 Southern League All-Star Game. Position players Steve Clevenger, Ryan Flaherty, Marwin Gonzalez, Brett Jackson, Blake Lalli, DJ LeMahieu, Rebel Ridling and Matt Spencer will join teammates Marco Carrillo, Rafael Dolis, Trey McNutt and Rob Whitenack on the North Division roster at Pringles Park in Jackson, Tenn. for the June 21 game.

Carrillo and LeMahieu, who have both been promoted to Triple-A Iowa and MLB Chicago Cubs, respectively, were named to the All-Star team, but will not participate, due to the fact they were promoted after the ballots went out

The 12 members of the 2011 class makes Smokies history for most All-Star selections, surpassing the 2010 class of eight.

Players selected for the Southern League All-Star teams are selected by a vote of Southern League field managers, radio broadcasters, general managers and print media. The South Division roster will be announced tomorrow, June 8th. Starting lineups for the North and South Divisions will be released on June 9th and 10th respectively.
