Reds’ Billy Hamilton Leads California League All-Stars

The California and Carolina leagues released their respective all-star rosters on Monday. The annual exhibition will be played in Winston-Salem, N.C., at the Dash's BB&T Ballpark on Tuesday, June 19.

The Cal League holds an 8-7 series lead as the event heads into its 16th year. The rosters for each side were decided upon based on votes from each league’s front office, managers and media. Dash manager Tommy Thompson will guide the Carolina all-stars with Lake Elsinore skipper Shawn Wooten guiding the California squad.

Lake Elsinore righthander Donn Roach, a supplemental third-round pick in 2010, was voted as the starter for the Cal League. The Carolina League starter has yet to be named, but Thompson certainly has plenty of options. His options include Frederick’s Dylan Bundy, Myrtle Beach’s Cody Buckel and Wilmington’s Yordano Ventura.

The festivities kick off at 6 p.m. with the home run derby, followed by the game at 7:15.

Complete rosters are below with this year's participants, noting age, acquisition history and performance through June 11.

Key to notations: *bats/throws lefthanded. #switch-hitter.
