Former UH baseball players catcher Chris Wallace, infielder Blake Kelso and pitcher Michael Goodnight have been named to the all-star teams of their respective leagues.

Wallace and Kelso both play in the Class A South Atlantic League.

Wallace, a member of the Astros’ farm system, will represent the Lexington Legends for the South Division squad.

Kelso will play for the North Division team, representing the Hagerstown Suns of the Washington Nationals system.

Wallace is tied for second in the league in home runs with 14 and will also compete in the BB&T Home Run Derby.

Kelso leads the league in hits (88) and is also tied with teammate Bryce Harper for eighth in batting average (.330).

Goodnight pitches for the Lake County Captains in the Midwest League as a member of the Cleveland Indians minor league system. He is 5-5 with a 3.04 ERA.

Ground broken for new facility

Construction is underway for the Dave Williams Golf Academy at Redstone Golf Club.

The academy will be built on the Redstone Tournament Course driving range and will feature indoor and outdoor hitting bays, a players’ lounge and reception area, as well as offices for head coach Jonathan Dismuke and assistant coach Chris Hill.

Redstone recently became the Cougars’ official home golf course.
