From the Dayton Dragons:

The eight players in the 2007 All-Star game are the most the Dragons have sent since the team’s inaugural season of 2000 when Dayton sent 10 players to the game, which was also hosted by Kane County .  The Dragons have three players in the starting lineup and will make up three fourths of the starting infield.  Second baseman Justin Turner, shortstop Chris Valaika and third baseman Juan Francisco will start for the Eastern Division.

Rounding out the Dayton All Star representatives are outfielder Drew Stubbs and pitchers Rafael Gonzalez, Marcos Mateo, Pedro Viola and Sean Watson.

The Dragons have cooled off considerably since their 16-4 April…only 2 over .500 since then and their division lead has dropped to 3.5 games with a big 5 game series this weekend with the second place West Michigan Whitecaps.
