Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis and infielder L.J. Mazzilli will represent the Long Island Ducks on the Liberty Division's roster at the independent Atlantic League All-Star game at PeoplesBank Park, home of the York Revolution, in York, Pennsylvania.
With Niese, the Ducks now have five ex-Mets on their roster -- three players (Niese, Matt den Dekker and Kirk Nieuwenhuis) and two coaches (Wally Backman and Ed Lynch).
Another former Met finds his way to Long Island.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis set to play his first season in the Atlantic League and 12 in pro baseball.
