Prospects to watch in the Eastern League All-Star Game
Keep an eye on these six players.

Some of the biggest stars of the Eastern League won’t be at Wednesday’s All-Star Game at Hadlock Field. New Britain catcher Tom Murphy, a rising prospect for the Colorado Rockies, is playing in the Pan-Am Games. Bowie pitcher Terry Doyle, a former Boston College standout, is not available because he’s been promoted to Triple-A.

But it’s certain that the game will feature future major leaguers. Here are six prospects to keep your eyes on:

Eastern Division wins All-Star Game in Home Run Derby Shootout
Marco Hernandez of the Sea Dogs is the game's MVP.

Baseball traditionalists might be cringing, but for the sold-out Hadlock Field crowd of 7,368, it was one dramatic way to end a ballgame.

After nine innings and a 4-4 score in the Eastern League All-Star Game Wednesday night, the league used a “Home Run Shootout” to decide the winner.

And the Eastern Division won on Brian Pointer’s home run on the 22nd shootout swing, causing Hadlock to erupt and his teammates to mob him.

Notebook: Altoona’s Dan Gamache wins Eastern League Home Run Derby
The infielder hit four homers to hold off Richmond's Ricky Oropesa.

Dan Gamache has never hit more than six home runs in any of his five minor-league baseball seasons.

But the Altoona Curve infielder sneaked up on the field and then surpassed them all Wednesday to win the Home Run Derby ahead of the Eastern League All-Star Game at Hadlock Field.

Gamache pounded four home runs in nine swings in the final round to outpace Ricky Oropesa of the Richmond Flying Squirrels, who hit two.

Thousands of autograph seekers have field day at Hadlock
All-Stars sign posters, baseballs, even a replica home plate, for adoring fans.

In the calm before the rush, Josh Bell picked a black Sharpie off a white tablecloth draped over a folding table in the relatively empty left-field concourse at Hadlock Field.

Bell, a first baseman for the Double-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates located in Altoona, Pennsylvania, was one of the most sought-after signers at autograph sessions Wednesday afternoon before the Eastern League All-Star Game.

“It’s cool,” said Bell, whose signing bonus of $5 million in 2011 set a record for a second-round draft pick.

Former Sox closer Lee Smith strolls down memory lane
Smith is serving as a pitching coach in the Eastern League All-Star Game at Hadlock Field.

Lee Smith’s best baseball memory involves an All-Star game.

He was delighted to share the story Wednesday in Portland, where he was on hand for another All-Star game, this time as the pitching coach for the Western squad in the Eastern League game.

Smith, a hulking 6-foot-5 right-hander from Louisiana, is third all time on major league baseball’s saves list with 478 over an 18-year career.

Eastern League All-Star Game: Sea Dogs shine, and East wins in "shootout"

PORTLAND — Home cooking and an unusual dessert made it a tasty Eastern League All-Star Classic for Portland Sea Dogs faithful Wednesday night at Hadlock Field.

Portland’s delegates to the midsummer showcase delivered early and authoritatively for the East in a 5-4 win over the West before a capacity crowd of 7,368.

Most of those spectators stayed to watch an ending they probably will never see again.
