Maple Hill grad Miller heading to PGCBL All-Star Game

July 14, 2017 - 04:45 pm

The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) has announced the roster for the East and West Divisions for the upcoming 2017 PGCBL All-Star Game, which will be hosted by the Amsterdam Mohawks at Shuttleworth Park on Tuesday.

The East Division, which is comprised of the Albany Dutchmen, Amsterdam Mohawks, Glens Falls Dragons, Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, Oneonta Outlaws, Saugerties Stallions and Utica Blue Sox, is looking to improve upon its unblemished 5-0 record from the previous All-Star Games that have been held in an East vs. West format.

Former Maple Hill High School pitcher was one of the selection to the East squad as a pitcher.

The host Mohawks lead all East Division teams with eight selections, including both Week 2 co-Players of the Week, Liam Wilson (Canisius) and T.J. Collett (Kentucky). In addition, Amsterdam head coach Keith Griffin will manage the East Division squad.

The six-team West Division is made up by the Adirondack Trail Blazers, Elmira Pioneers, Geneva Red Wings, Jamestown Jammers, Onondaga Flames and Newark Pilots.

The West will be managed by Elmira’s first-year head coach, Brian Hill. His Pioneers have seven selections in the 2017 PGCBL All-Star Game, headlined by infielder Troy Dixon (Samford), who was the starter at third base in the 2016 Midsummer Classic. Houston Roth (Ole Miss), the right-hander who established a new league record with 20 strikeouts in a complete-game victory in June, is one of the two Elmira pitchers included on the team.
