Pitcher Garrett Harris started the All-Star Game for the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball.

The Anderson-Shiro High School graduate allowed two hits in two scoreless innings against the Frontier League. The Trois-Rivieres Aigles right-hander was the only one of the 19 pitchers, including nine on the Can-Am squad, to throw two innings. He did not earn a decision in the Can-Am 7-0 loss.

Harris struck out the first batter swinging before allowing a single and retiring the next two hitters.

In the second inning, the 25-year-old allowed a leadoff single. He struck out the next batter swinging, and the runner on first was thrown out trying to advance on the pitch. Harris issued a base on balls after falling behind 3-1 in the count before retiring the next batter.
