PCC's Chisenhall Named To All-Star Team

NILES, OH—Lonnie Chisenhall, a former Pitt Community College baseball standout, will take the field Tuesday- night as part of the Fourth Annual New York-Penn League All-Star Game at Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy, NY.

Chisenhall, who was selected 29th overall by the Cleveland Indians in this year’s Major League Baseball Draft, was one of five players from the Mahoning Valley Scrappers to be named an All-Star.

The former Bulldogs infielder is playing shortstop for the Scrappers and has a .301 batting average (66-for-219) through 52 games. Of his 66 hits, 22 (four homers, three triples and 15 doubles) have gone for extra bases.

On Sunday night, Chisenhall finished 3-for-4 from the plate with a run batted in to lead Mahoning Valley to a 6-4 victory over Jamestown.

At PCC, Chisenhall was named Third-Team All-NJCAA, NJCAA All-District and First-Team All-Region X Conference after posting a .528 on-base percentage in 2008. In 53 games for the Bulldogs, the Newport native batted .410 (68-for-166), notched 68 runs batted in, scored 58 runs, drew 38 walks and struck out just eight times. Of his 68 hits, 27 went for doubles, four were triples and eight left the park altogether.
