Summer reward for Indians all-stars

LeDarious Clark and fellow Spokane Indians all-stars Dylan Moore and Yeyson Yrizarri have the numbers to back up their selection. Read story


Does an All-Star Game exist just for fun or is it a high-pressure situation?


Spokane's representatives lean toward the fun side.


Yrizarri said the game gives players who are usually opponents a chance to meet and gauge talents. But the real goal happens after the game, he said.


"I've been working hard," Yrizarri said. "It's not about the All-Star Game. It's about winning the league."


Clark, pleased that the game will be played on his home field, believes that a low-key attitude is best.


"It's a day to relax and have fun and play with some of the best players in the league," Clark said.


Moore, who said he was humbled by the selection, echoes what Clark says.


"It's my first pro year, first pro All-Star Game, so I think I'll have a lot of fun," Moore said.


Clark and Moore also said that they'll be interested in seeing if they recognize anybody on the Pioneer League's roster.
