Right-fielder Rob Lyerly of the Northwoods League this season. The first handful of games in the nascent Second Half haven't been quite as smooth for the team, but the upcoming All-Star Game break this weekend followed by a five game home stand may help get them back on track.
Lyerly, a UNC-Charlotte player who has led the Mallards offensively this season and is near the top in league batting average standings, is one of four team members named to the South Division squad in the All-Star Game. The fun begins at the Duck Pond on Sunday, July 13 with the All-Star Fan Fest at 2 p.m., followed by a Home Run Derby at 4:30 p.m. and the All-American Challenge between Home Talent League All-Star and Military All-Star teams at 6:05 p.m. The big game itself is at 7:05 p.m. on Monday, July 14, and will be broadcast live on ESPNU.
