The York Revolution will be well represented at the Atlantic League All-Star Game.

Four members of the Revs have been selected to play in the contest.

Three members of the Revs' infield — first baseman Johan Limonta, second baseman Eric Patterson and shortstop Wilson Valdez — were picked for the game, as was York closer Rommie Lewis.

York is fresh off clinching the Freedom Division first-half championship with a 41-29 record. That guarantees the Revs a berth in the Atlantic League playoffs. The four York all-stars were instrumental in helping the Revs earn that title.

Limonta (.288, seven homers, 45 RBIs, 29 runs), Patterson (.302, seven homers, 45 RBIs, 47 runs) and Valdez (.288, 19 RBIs, 41 runs, 28 stolen bases) sparked the Revs' offense, while Lewis (2-0, 2.32 ERA, 17 saves) helped anchor the York pitching staff.

York had more players selected to the Atlantic League All-Star Team than any other franchise.

The Atlantic League All-Star Game, which is set for Wednesday, July 16, at Constellation Field in Sugar Land, Texas, will feature a different format this season. The host Skeeters will take on the best of the other seven Atlantic League teams in a Texas vs. East Coast showdown.

Lancaster's Butch Hobson will manage the Atlantic League All-Star Team, which features a 22-player roster. Somerset, Bridgeport, Lancaster, Southern Maryland, Long Island and Camden each had three players picked for the Atlantic League All-Star Team, which was selected based on voting by fans, teams and media.
