Cogs to Play in All Star Game

I received an email about Chris this afternoon and looked a little more into this. After reading this, I began to think about what former Ole Miss players that are in the minor league's now will actual make it in pro ball. By making it in pro ball, I mean more than a year stint in the league. I would guess Steven Head or Mark Holliman has the best chance of making it. However, I do not keep up that much with the minor league players. Who do you think will make it(if any)?

OXFORD, Miss. – Former Rebel third baseman Chris Coghlan will draw the start on Tuesday, June 19, in the South Atlantic League All-Star Game in Rome, Ga., in a game to be televised by Comcast Sports Southeast. Coghlan will be starting at second base in the 48th annual event at 6:30 p.m. CST.

Coghlan, in his second season of professional ball, has been playing second base for the Sally League’s second place Greensboro Grasshoppers. Coghlan is the top hitter on the team with a .332 batting average on the year with eight home runs and 57 RBI. He also leads the team in doubles (22) and triples (4) this season.
