A pair of Hickory Crawdads will represent the Texas Rangers organization on a big stage July 14.
Third baseman Joey Gallo and catcher Jorge Alfaro were both selected to the 2013 Major League Baseball Futures Game at Citi Stadium in New York, N.Y.
The game is part of MLBâ€™s All-Star festivities, which includes the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game.
Shelby made the most of its two-out plate appearance against Hickory on Wednesday.
Starting the bottom of the first with two-straight outs, Post 82 scored four runs on four hits and an error against Post 48.
That four-run inning helped propel Shelby to an eventual 6-3 Area IV West Division victory against Hickory at Hoyt Keeter Stadium.
