HOMER CITY â€” The Federation League All-Stars will take on the All-Stars from the Indiana County League 7 p.m. tonight at First Commonwealth Field in Homer City. Both leagues have selected standout players from each of the teams, nominated and voted upon by each leaguesâ€™ players.
All of the proceeds will go to Pennsylvania Junior Legion Baseball regional and state tournaments, which will also be held at First Commonwealth Field.
Punxsutawney's Devin Mesoraco struggled Friday night against the Toledo Mud Hens. Mesoraco, who plays for the Class AAA minor league team, the Louisville Bats, has become known as one of the heavy hitters in the International League.
Mesoraco, the 2007 first-round draft pick by the Cincinnati Reds, had a tough night Friday as he went 0-for-3 from the plate, but he was struck out just once.
During the bottom of the ninth, with the score tied at one, Mesoraco was intentionally walked by relief pitcher Matt Hoffman, negating that chance at bat.
