Left-handed pitcher Matt Denny and right-handed pitcher Scott Weathersby both represented Ole Miss in collegiate summer baseball league all-star games Wednesday night. They are among several members of the Rebel baseball team participating in summer league ball during the offseason before returning to Ole Miss in the fall.

Weathersby plays for the Southern California Catch of the California Collegiate League. He was named to the South Division All-Star team and picked up the win, as the South All-Stars defeated the North All-Stars, 3-2. Weathersby worked a perfect fifth inning with a strikeout.

He also has 21 strikeouts against eight walks in 23.2 innings over five starts. His best outing came against the Herndon Braves on June 29 when he worked six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits with no walks and five strikeouts.

Another Ole Miss player who has impressed this summer has been junior right-hander Chris Ellis, who plays for the Cotuit Kettleers of the Cape Cod League. He ranks ninth in the league in opponents' batting average and 10th in earned run average.
