The Coastal Plain League announced today the rosters for the 2022 All-Star Game to be held in Holly Springs, N.C., at Dick Sears Field at Ting Stadium on Sunday, July 10 at 5:40 p.m. This marks the 22nd year the CPL has played an All-Star Game and the first since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The players were voted upon within their division by CPL head coaches, broadcasters and local media representatives from each market. Since the game is being played in the Holly Springs Salamanders’ home ballpark, the East CPL All-Stars will be the home team while the West CPL All-Stars will serve as the visitors.

Earning the start on the mound for the West CPL All-Stars will be Dalton Pence of Forest City as he earned the most votes of any West Division pitcher and therefore will pitch the first inning of the game. The 6-2, 205-pound lefty from North Carolina has been dominant for the Owls so far, featuring a league-best 0.37 ERA to go with a 3-0 record. In 24 2/3 innings of work, Pence has given up just two runs – one earned – on 12 hits, while walking four and striking out 18. Further, he features a 0.65 WHIP, a .140 BAA and a K/9 of 6.568.

Toeing the rubber first for the East CPL All-Stars will also be Morehead City ace Tyler Wehrle. The 6-3, 225-pound righthander from Tiffin was also the top vote getter in his division and currently sports a 1.95 ERA with a 2-0 record. In six starts for the Marlins, Wehrle has surrendered 12 runs – six earned – on 16 hits to go with just four walks and a league-best 38 strikeouts. Opposing batters have been held to a .160 average, while his WHIP sits at 0.72 and K/9 at 12.361.
