The team will send four pitchers, including lefty starter Will Stewart, righty starter Ramon Rosso, left-handed reliever Kyle Dohy and right-handed reliever Addison Russ.  Additionally, third baseman Jake Scheiner and shortstop Nick Maton are also on the team. 

Stewart, 20, holds the league's best ERA among qualified players with a 1.23 mark.  The Phillies' 20th round draft pick from 2015 also sports a 5-0 record and a .197 batting average against through nine starts this season.

Rosso, a native of the Dominican Republic, has a 2-1 record with a 1.44 ERA and a .191 BAA.  The 21-year-old has garnered a lot of attention this season with his seemingly out-of-nowhere, surprising contributions.

Dohy, a 16th round draft pick last year, has a 3-3 record with a 1.00 ERA and a .157 BAA in 19 appearances. The California native is 21 years old.

Scheiner, a righty batter, is batting .273 with 11 doubles, a triple, seven homers and 20 RBI through 52 games this season.  The 22-year-old Californian was selected in the 4th round of last year's draft.

Maton is hitting .267 with 10 doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI in 45 contests this year.  The 21-year-old was drafted in the 7th round last year.  His brother Phil is a pitcher for the Padres.

The 59th annual Sally League All-Star exhibition will be played in Greensboro, home of the Marlins affiliate Grasshoppers, on Tuesday, June 19th. 

Also announced last week were the Class A Advanced Florida State League All-Star.  Phillies developmental players that made that league's North Division All-Star roster were righty hurler Sixto Sanchez, the youngest pitcher in the league, first baseman Darick Hall, who was already promoted to Double-A Reading and won't take part in the contest, shortstop Arquimedes Gamboa and designated hitter Austin Listi.

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps.

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
