Adam Duvall Selected For MLB All-Star Game 07-14-16Duvall At Chipola 07-14-16

FORMER CHIPOLA PLAYER IN HOMERUN DERBY AND ALL-STAR GAME

 

MARIANNA—Former Chipola College player Adam Duvall represented his Cincinnati Reds and the National league in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the MLB Homerun Derby.

In Tuesday’s All-Star game, Duvall played two innings in left field and had two at-bats including a nine-pitch at-bat to draw a walk. Duvall was the only Cincinnati player in the game. He played two innings in left field and got two at-bats, a ground-out and a walk. "I was excited to be there," Duvall said on his selection. “I just wanted to represent the club well, go out there, play hard and have fun with it.” Duvall said his experience in the Homerun Derby helped prepare him for the All-Star Game.

In the Homerun Derby, Duvall advanced to the semi-final round on Monday.  He hit 11 homers in the first round to defeat Wil Myers. Duvall then hit 15 four-baggers in the semi-finals against defending-champion Todd Frazier. Frazier eliminated Duvall with 16 homeruns to make it to the finals against eventual champion Giancarlo Stanton.

Duvall is off to a great start in his first full big league season, with 23 homeruns. He is third in homers in the National league and eighth in the entire MLB tied with Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson and Nelson Cruz—all with 23 homers as of July 7.

Chipola baseball coach Jeff Johnson says, “We’re extremely of proud of Adam.  He’s a great player with a bright future.” Duvall played second base at Chipola in 2008 where he led the Indians to a state championship and an appearance in the JUCO World Series. He went on to play at the University of Louisville where he was team captain. He was an 11th-round pick of the Giants (348th overall) in 2010 MLB draft.

Duvall is the fourth Chipola Indian in school history to make the MLB All-Star team. Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista will miss the All-Star game for the first time since 2009. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list June 17 with turf toe. The six-time All-Star (2010 to 2015) led all players in All-Star voting in 2014 and 2013. Other former Chipola players with an MLB All-Star pedigree include Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin (2015, 2011, 2008 and 2007) and Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin (2013).
