Scheduled for Tuesday, August 3 at the La Crosse Loggers’ Copeland Park, the showcase consists of a day of workouts in front of MLB scouts before concluding with a doubleheader of game action. Four rosters have been determined for the event, with each roster taking part in one matchup.

Game 1 is slated for 4:05 p.m. with a Game 2 start time of 7:35. All three Woodchucks participants will take part in the nightcap.

Through 17 games, Reid is batting .350 with a .987 OPS, three home runs and 14 RBIs. He has a hit in 15 of his 17 appearances.

Hoeft leads the Woodchucks in innings pitched with 48 and two-thirds. His five wins are tied for second in the Northwoods League and first in the Great Lakes Division. He displays a 3.14 earned run average and 1.23 WHIP.

Telfer’s four saves are tied for a team-high. He has thrown 26 innings and is 3-1 on the season. Opposing batters are hitting just .209 on the reliever.
