Burlington, VT - Schenectady's J.P. Sportman (La Salle Institute/CCSU) has been named to the New York-Penn League All Star Game, despite only joining the Vermont Lake Monsters three weeks ago.
But during that time, Oakland's 27th-round draft pick is batting .400 with three home runs and 13 RBI's.
Sportman began his first professional season with the A's rookie league team in Arizona, where he batted .321 to earn a promotion to Vermont.
The NYPL All Star game will be played August 19th in Brooklyn.
The former South Troy Dodger will get a chance to play at Joe Bruno Stadium August 20, 21, 25, 26 and 27 when the Monsters visit the ValleyCats.
