Tim Pahuta (’10-’12) was named the American Association’s Hitter of the Month for June after he hit .396 with 11 home runs and 26 RBIs in 26 games.

Zach Walters (’12) was selected to represent the Syracuse Chiefs as an International League All-Star.

• As a thank you to “special people doing heroic acts”, the Senators have announced that this Monday they will host their first ever Community Day. All firefighters, police, EMTs, teachers, nurses, doctors, hospital workers and members of the Armed Forces and their families can attend the noon game for free.

Old Faces, New Places
