Two Hokies earn organization All-Star distinctions

During the professional baseball's offseason, MiLB.com is taking a look at the most outstanding seasons by players in each system across Minor League Baseball and honoring those players – regardless of age or prospect status – who had the best seasons within their respected organization.

Releasing approximately three teams each week since the beginning of October, which will run through the end of December, MiLB.com has announced half of its all-star teams and two Hokies – Kit Scheetz and Mark Zagunis – have been recognized as all-stars for their clubs by the website.

Zagunis, who played 97 games for the Iowa Cubs, the Triple-A level team of the Chicago Cubs, was chosen as one of the three outfielders named a Cubs’ organizational all-star.

Scheetz, on the other hand, who was not drafted this past season and signed a free agent contract on June 23 with the Houston Astros was named to the Astros’ organization all-star as the left-handed starter.
