merging my pictures and cards

Midwest League All Stars

Ryan Schimpf – MWL All Star


Nick Schumaker


Nate Freiman – MWL All Star


Matt Cerda – MWL All Star

Matt was one of the Wildcard picks when I attended the Peoria game against the Silverhawks. I knew about some of the can’t miss prospects on the team, but Matt was a little different. He is not the prototype player that makes it to the bigs, but he has the heart that can get him there. He obviously played well enough to make the Midwest League All Star team. I look forward to following his career. (more…)

Chad Jenkins – MWL League All Star

Earlier today I posted the regular card of Chad Jenkins. Now it is time for his Midwest League All Star card. As with the other MWL All Stars I have used the 1986 Topps template for this card. I like how it looks on these cards. I will have to think of a template for the Northern League All Star squad. Once again at 1 Blue Jay Way they have great interview with Chad in which he has a couple classic lines. (more…)

Eric Smith – MWL All Star

Eric is one of four Silverhawk players that was selected to play in tonight’s All Star game in Fort Wayne. By now the game should be about 2/3 of the way over. As the season goes on I will have more all star cards from Midwest League players. (more…)

Mark Sobolewski – MWL All Star

Mark is a perfect example of why an All Star team in low A ball is hard to put together. He was one of the better players who was selected to the Midwest League All Star game that will be played tonight in Fort Wayne. The problem is that if you are playing too good you will be called up. That was the case a little over a week ago when the Blue Jays moved Mark up to their high A ball team in Dunedin. (more…)

Chris Owings – MWL All Star

Chris was one of the Silverhawks selected for the Midwest League All Star game in Fort Wayne. He was selected 41st overall in the 2009 draft out of high school. He has been a solid player for the Silverhawks this season, and his selection is warranted to the all star game. (more…)

Hak-Ju Lee – MWL All Star

Lee is one of the top prospects in the Cubs organization. He may end up being good enough that he forces Starlin Castro to move over to second. He was selected this week to represent Peoria in the Midwest League All Star game June 22nd. (more…)

Logan Watkins – MWL All Star

Today the rosters for the 2010 Midwest League All Star game were announced. I thought that I would make a card for them that was a little different than the Major League cards. I chose the 1986 All Star set to base it off of. Something looks a little off to me, but overall it is not a bad looking card. Look for a few more of these to come out in between now and the MWL all star game in a couple of weeks. (more…)
