Justin Yurchak, a 2014 graduate of Shenendehowa, was named Monday as a participant in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game.

Yurchak, playing this summer for the Amsterdam Mohawks, will play for the league’s East team, which Mohawks head coach Keith Griffin will guide. The game will take place July 20 in Little Falls.

Through 33 games, Yurchak has helped the first-place Mohawks to a 26-7 record with his .319 batting average, 18 RBIs, and 25 runs scored.

After playing at Wake Forest as a freshman, Yurchak announced last week that he is transferring to Binghamton to continue his baseball career after this summer.
