Prep baseball: Murphy, Ohlman meet in SAL All-Star Game


J.R. Murphy and Michael Ohlman already have a lot in common.

They are baseball players from Manatee County. They catch. They were chosen during the 2009 baseball draft and passed up on the University of Miami to sign pro contracts.

Their paths met again Tuesday night during the South Atlantic League's All-Star Game in Delmarva, where Murphy's South Division stars beat Ohlman's North squad 6-3.

Murphy, playing with the New York Yankees' Single-A SAL affiliate in Charleston, pinch hit in the seventh and went for 0-2. He was listed as a designated hitter.

Ohlman, whose Delmarva Shorebirds are an affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, was one of three catchers used by the North team. He went 0-for-1.
