DUNEDIN, Fl.–Despite leading the Class-A Florida State League in homers and being just one away from breaking the Brevard County Manatees record for the season Canadian Brock Kjeldgaard harbors no ill will for not being selected to play in the league’s 50th All Star game played last Saturday.

     “It was a little disappointing but it’s part of the game,” said Kjeldgaard prior to a rare day game in Dunedin on Tuesday, “It’s not the most important thing obviously.  It would have been nice to go there, they are always fun I hear but there is nothing you can do about it.  I understand how the process goes but it’s too bad it didn’t happen”

     Kjeldgaard was a 34-round pick of the Brewers in 2005 but after posting just a 1-3 record with a 5.53 era on the mound for two seasons he made the switch to the field as a first baseman, outfielder and DH. (Photo by EDDIE MICHELS)
