Cunningham named to American Association All-Star Game

LUBBOCK, Texas (July 13, 2009) - The American Association of Independent Professional Baseball announced their rosters for the 2009 All-Star Game scheduled for July 21st in Grand Prairie, Texas, and making the roster for the South Division was former Lubbock Christian University and current Shreveport-Bossier Captains pitcher Jakob Cunningham.

He was one of three Captains pitchers selected by South manager Pete Incaviglia of Grand Prairie.  A member of this past season's NAIA title winning team, Cunningham has been stellar with the Captains this season.  The first-year pro is 3-0 this season with a 0.93 ERA.  He has allowed just two earned runs in 19.1 innings pitched and has 23 strikeouts.  Saturday, he earned his first pro save of the season.  Opponents are batting just .133 against Cunningham this season. 

In other baseball news, Chris Holguin, who had two impressive starts with the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays, has been promoted to Class A, joining the Lansing Lugnuts of the Midwest League.  He is scheduled to start Monday night, as Lansing faces the Burlington Bees on the road.  Holguin is 1-1 this season with a 0.00 ERA.  In 11 innings, he has allowed one unearned run and has eight strikeouts. Buck Britton, who was batting .261 in nine games with the Aberdeen IronBirds (short-season Class A of the New York-Penn League), was promoted to the Class A Delmarva Shorebirds of the South Atlantic League.  In two games, Britton has produced a pair of 2-for-4 performances with the Shorebirds.  On the season, Britton is batting .294 in 12 games with three doubles, a home run and three runs-batted-in.
