PITTSFIELD — On Tuesday, July 16, the best players from across the Futures Collegiate Baseball League gathered at Wahconah Park for the longest, but most important, day of their summer.

The Pittsfield Suns hosted the league’s All-Star Game, Home Run Derby and Scout Day, where those shining brightest in the league can display their talents in front of representatives from around the world of baseball, ready to find hidden gems spread across New England.

Overall, 10 Suns were able to represent their team for either the Hillies or Electrics, named after two of the earliest teams to call Wahconah Park home in the ballpark’s 100-plus year history.

On the Electrics, the designated road team, were second baseman Jack Culumovic, catcher Matt Malcom and pitchers John Clayton, Henry Leake and Mike Nocchi. On the homestanding Hillies were catcher Jackson Petersen, outfielders Mark Coley and Jeff Boggess and pitchers Ryan Langford and John Morrison.
