Three Victoria HarbourCats named to all-star team

Mid-season classic to be held in Klamath Falls. Ore. on Monday

Three members of the Victoria HarbourCats – one pitcher, two position players – will take to the field in the 2014 West Coast League All-Star Game, slated for Monday (July 21) in Klamath Falls, Ore.

Nanaimo product and right-handed pitcher Alex Rogers, shortstop Alex DeGoti and first baseman Gabe Clark are among 42 players who will take part in the baseball showcase event.

Clark was named through the team’s fan vote, while Rogers and DeGoti were selected by a vote of coaches around the league.

“We’re proud of all three of them, and we know they will represent us well,” said general manager Jim Swanson.

Other players could be named in case of injury.

Also representing the HarbourCats at the All-Star Game will be president John McLean and Swanson, who will take part in meetings and special events. The festivities will feature a scouting combine, a home run derby, and the feature game.

Last year, the HarbourCats played host to the game.
