Wong invited back to Futures Game

Often considered one of the best prospects in baseball, Hilo native and former University of Hawai’i second baseman Kolten Wong will fit right at home in MLB’s All-Star weekend.

The Cardinals farmhand is headed to his second Futures Game, a mixture of top prospects from any denomination in the minor leagues, to represent the United States versus the World.

The 2011 first round pick is hitting .319 with a .839 OPS in AAA Memphis this season, including 5 home runs.

The Futures Game will take place on Sunday, July 14th at Citi Field.
