Spencer Selected to Represent RiverDogs at SAL All-Star Game

First baseman/DH earns the second all-star nomination of his young career
June 9, 2015

CHARLESTON, SC - The South Atlantic League has announced the rosters for the 56th Annual SAL All-Star Game, and Charleston RiverDogs' first baseman Connor Spencer has been tabbed to represent the Southern Division for this year's tilt on June 23 at McCormick Field in Asheville, NC.

Spencer, 22, was named a Southern Division starter and will fill the designated hitter role in the Mid-Summer Classic. He has compiled a team-high .297 average in 46 games, hitting 47-for-158 with nine doubles and a team-high 23 runs batted in. The Trabuco Canyon, California native reached in a season-high 21-straight games from April 25 - May 25. During that stretch he hit .299 (20-of-67). In 21 games during May, Spencer hit .333 (22-of-66). He leads the team with seven hit-by-pitches and paces the South Atlantic League with six sacrifice flies.

This is the second all-star nomination of Spencer's young career as he earned Mid-Season All-Star recognition with the Staten Island Yankees of the New York-Penn League in 2014. He was selected by the New York Yankees in the eighth round of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of California-Irvine.

Both all-star teams will be represented by 26 players, selected by the votes of the teams' managers and coaching staffs, local media and front office executives. The Greenville Drive led the league with eight player selections in the Southern Division. In the Northern Division, the Hickory Crawdads will send seven players to Asheville. McCormick Field will be hosting its third SAL All-Star Game. First pitch of the 56th Annual South Atlantic League All-Star Game is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. on June 23 at McCormick Field in Asheville, NC.
