Alumni Spotlight: Former Shark Carlos Asuaje Selected to Play in MLB’s Futures Game

NSUbb042812_021Former Nova Southeastern University baseball player Carlos Asuaje has been selected to play in Major League Baseball’s Futures Game on July 10 at Petco Park in San Diego, Calif. This will be Asuaje’s first Futures Game and the first time any former Sharks baseball player will play in the Futures Game.

“It’s a great honor for me to be selected to the Futures Game,” said Asuaje. “It was a goal of mine since being drafted. To me, its especially awesome because I’ll be playing in front of the people of San Diego and represent the country I was born in, Venezuela.”

The Futures Game is an annual baseball exhibition game hosted by Major League Baseball. Started in 1999, a team of minor league baseball prospects from the United States and a team of prospects from other countries in the World compete against each other. The game takes place during MLB’s All-Star break in the city and stadium that the MLB All-Star game is held.
