The NWL and PGCBL games took place Tuesday night, July 18, with Hanson and Pettersen each making an impact in their respective games.

He's slashing .442/.507/.625 for Mankato with 14 doubles, a triple, two home runs, 27 runs batted in, and 31 runs scored, but it was not enough as the North Division fell 6-2 in the contest.

Pettersen finished 2-for-2 with a double, a walk, a run scored, and an RBI in the PGCBL All-Star contest. On the year, he is batting .279/.380/.303 for Saugerties with three doubles, 24 runs scored, 13 walks, and 10 runs batted in. Pettersen's East Division team downed the West 10-8 in eight innings.

Coffey and the Cape Cod All-Stars will take the field Saturday night, July 22. On the year for the Harbor Hawks, Coffey is batting .299/.346/.402 with four doubles, two homers, 10 runs batted in, and nine runs scored. He will be the starting third baseman for the East Division team.
