PORTLAND, MAINE – On Monday, four Fisher Cats were named to participate in this year’s Eastern League All-Star Game, taking place on July 10 in Richmond, Virginia.
Infielders Nash Knight and Santago Espinal, outfielder Forrest Wall and starting pitcher Zach Logue will represent New Hampshire on the Eastern Division squad, with Fisher Cats manager Mike Mordecai managing the Eastern Division due to New Hampshire’s status as defending league champions.

In May, Wall ranked fourth in the league in both batting average (.327) and on-base percentage (.409).
