Winnipeg Goldeyes first baseman Casey Haerther was named to the all-star team after earning two player-of-the-week awards in just three weeks.

As Shaw Park gears up to host the 2014 American Association All-Star celebrations on July 28 and 29, fans will be treated to plenty of Winnipeg Goldeyes representation.

Six Goldeyes made the cut for the North all-star team, which was announced on Monday afternoon. They include first baseman Casey Haerther, fresh off a stunning first half that saw him earn two player-of-the-week awards in just three weeks, and savvy shortstop Tyler Kuhn, who is batting .358 through the season.

Longtime Fish catcher Luis Alen made the roster — he’s been batting .307 this season with 26 RBI — and in the outfield, noted base thief Donnie Webb was named to the all-star team. On the mound, Goldeyes bullpen bulwark Chris Kissock got the nod for his 11 saves and 2.83 ERA in 28 appearances.

Infielder and sometime designated hitter Ryan Pineda also got an all-star nod for his .302 season average and responsible defending. However, he broke his hand last week and will not be able to play in the game.

Another familiar face making the journey to Shaw Park in two weeks is Matt Rusch, the former Goldeyes starting pitcher who moved back to Quebec this season. The genial pitcher will represent the Trois-Rivieres Aigles for the North team in the all-star game. This season in Can-Am League play, he’s 4-3 in 10 starts with a 2.39 ERA.

The all-star party kicks off on Monday, July 28 with a fan party and skills competition at Shaw Park. On Tuesday, major league legend Fergie Jenkins will speak at the all-star luncheon at the Fairmont Winnipeg, followed by a skills camp and the all-star game at night.
