Warriors have a part in the North's All Star Game Victory

The North Division pulled out an 8-6, rain-shortened, victory over the South in the 2007 Atlantic League All Star Game. Bridgeport OF Bobby Malek was awarded with the Stephen R. Shilling MVP trophy. Malek had a night to remember as he went 4-4 with 2 home runs, 2 singles, 2 stolen bases, 2 RBIs.

In addition to Malek's heroics, the 3 Road Warriors starters had a role in the win. First baseman Vito Chiaravalloti went 1 for 3 with a double and run scored. Vito came in on a hit by fellow Road Warrior, and starting catcher, Sandy Aracena. Aracena went 1-2 with that RBI. 3B David Housel went 0-2 with a strikeout; however, this strikeout was actually a productive one. On the third strike, South catcher Lance Burkhart, was unable to come up with the ball and it rolled past him. Housel, showed off his hustle, by making it to first on the passed ball. Housel and former Road Warrior SS Nick Ortiz, eventually came around to score on a single by Ray Navarrete. That hit put the North up 5-4, and they never looked back. Javier Colina and Kevin Haverbusch both his solo home runs for the North, in addition to Bobby Malek's 2 long balls.

Denny Abreu, Jeremy Todd and Dominick Ambrosini all hit home runs for the South squad. In addition, Ambrosini also had an RBI triple.
