Four players from the Sugar Land Skeeters will participate in the Atlantic League All-Star Game on Wednesday at PeoplesBank Park in York, Pa.

Pitchers Carlos Pimentel and Matt West, infielder Juan Silverio and outfielder Jared Mitchell were the Sugar Land players selected to the Freedom Division All-Stars as they face the Liberty Division All-Stars.

The ALPB All-Star Game will also make baseball history when an automated ball-strike system will be used. The system will leverage modern technology to provide a consistent strike zone to pitchers and hitters. The home plate umpire will continue to perform all of his normal duties but will be assisted in ball-strike calling by the system.
