You’ve probably been too busy voting for Junior to start the MLB All-Star game to notice that the AAA All-Star Game is happening just down the river from us in Louisville, KY.
OMGreds.com will be making the trek to “The L” to partake in the festivities for the “not yet ready for prime time players”. While we’re there, we’ll say hi to an old homeboy of ours – Dave Miley. After getting the boot from the Reds back in ’05, Dave has been with the Yankees organization the past three years as manager of the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Yankees. Miley has been chosen to manage the International League team at the AAA All-Star Game this year. The Yankees have gone 50-37 under Miley’s direction this season, good for 2nd place in the IL North Division. Bats Manager Rick Sweet will help him with the coaching at the game.
Louisville Bats’ catcher Ryan Hanigan (.296) and closer Jon Adkins (14 saves) have been named to the International League All-Star team. Sweet!
