Six Revs’ make 2012 Atlantic League All-Star roster
York will send six players to Camden’s Campbell’s Field next Wednesday for the 2012 Atlantic League All-Star game. The league announced the all-star rosters on Thursday afternoon.
Among the Revs’ players selected are starting pitching Corey Thurman, closer Adam Thomas, third baseman Ramon Castro, second baseman Andres Perez and outfielders Brandon Haveman and Michael Hernandez.
York is tied for third for the most players selected to the All-Star game, behind Lancaster (8) and Long Island (7).

Haveman: The University of Dayton announced earlier this week that it has hired the wife of Brandon Haveman, Sarah, to be the school’s new cross country coach and assistant track (distance) coach. Sarah comes to Dayton from Purdue University, where she was an assistant in track and cross country since the winter of 2011. Brandon and Sarah met at Purdue while going to school there a few years ago. As you might have guessed, both were stellar athletes – Brandon in baseball and Sarah in cross country and track & field. I honestly wouldn’t mind seeing a race between the two. I have a feeling Brandon might win a 100-meter dash, and Sarah would sweep in a long-distance race.
Hillenbrand returns: The Bridgeport Bluefish on Thursday announced the signing of infielder Shea Hillenbrand. He joins the Bluefish for his second season in the Atlantic League and 14th of professional baseball. The former Major League last played professionally in 2008 as a member of the York Revolution. In 36 games for York, he batted .340 with 11 extra-base hits, 25 RBI, and 22 runs scored. It’ll be interesting see if Hillenbrand has changed his ways since his infamous departure from York four years ago. For the Revs’ fans wondering when they will get a chance to see Hillenbrand in action at Sovereign Bank Stadium, the Bluefish next visit York following the All-Star break for a four-game set July 16-July 19.
