FAU's Adams, Garton selected Ripken All-Stars
Last week we told you about the success Florida Atlantic pitchers Hugh Adams and Ryan Garton were experiencing in the Cal Ripken Sr. Collegiate Summer Baseball League. The pair's performances haven't gone unnoticed.

Both Adams and Garton have been selected to the Ripken League All-Star Game. The best of the Ripken League will face the Valley League All-Stars on Wednesday in Waldorf, Maryland.

FAU's Adams is 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in five games for Bethesda. Fellow Owl Garton is 2-1 with a 0.49 ERA for the Maryland Redbirds.

Adams and Garton aren't the only FAU players in the Ripken League. Ahmed Garcia is 0-0 with a 3.00 record in three games as Adams' teammate in Bethesda. Garcia was orignially slated to be playing in the Prospect League in Illinios, but a roster issue predicated the switch.

Heading into the summer the Owls expected to have two players in the Prospect League, but ended up with zero. Brent Adheen elected to stay in Boca Raton for the summer to concentrate on academics.

In other summer news, Barry Rooks (photo) has joined the St. Cloud River Bats of the Northwoods League. Rooks expected to start the summer in the Northwoods League, but a family issue kept him away until this past week. Rooks has appeared in one game so far, allowing one earned run in two innings of work.
