Two players will be participating in the 2012 Frontier League All-Star Festivities July 10-11 in Normal, IL.
Starting pitcher Paul Fagan has made the All-Star roster for the first time since 2009. Fagan has been the ace of the Lake Erie rotation in 2012, posting a 4-3 record in 10 starts so far this season. He currently ranks 8th in the Frontier League with a 2.63 ERA, second in innings pitched with 65.0 and 10th in strikeouts with 42. Fagan has been the anchor of the Lake Erie pitching staff which currently ranks second in the league in ERA with a 3.69 team ERA.
Russell Moldenhauer, an infielder in his first year in the Frontier League, will also be participating in Normal next week.
As the cleanup hitter for the Crushers, Moldenhauer currently leads the league in doubles with 18. Moldenhauer also ranks near the league leaders in batting average, slugging percentage and OPS. Along with being the designated hitter for the All-Star team, Moldenhauer will participate in the 2012 Frontier League Home Run Derby on July 10 at the Corn Crib, home of the Cornbelters.
Other Crushers may still be added to the All-Star team depending on the three players the coaching staff decide to add.
