TWO MORE PENGUINS IN ALL-STAR GAMES

Manuppelli was named to the all-star team in the New England League and struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth inning of the all-star game. Manuppelli, pitching for the Laconia Muskrats, leads the New England League with his eight saves in 12 appearances. He has struck out 17 batters while walking five in 11 innings. Manuppelli will be a junior in 2013.
McCulloh, a Valley League all-star for the Rockbridge Rapids, ranks second in the league with six savs. The Boardman High graduate has 28 strikeouts and five walks in 19 2-3 innings while posting a 3.20 ERA. McCulloh, a senior in the 2013 season, also has earned two victories in his 16 appearances.
