Major League Lacrosse announced today Ohio Machine players Peter Baum, Tom Schreiber and Logan Schuss have been named MLL All-Stars and will play against Team USA in the 2014 MLL All-Star Game in Boston, MA on June 26, 2014. Baum, Schreiber and Schuss will face-off against fellow Machine teammates Kyle Harrison, Marcus Holman and Steele Stanwick, who were named to Team USA in February. Players were selected through a balloting process by MLL coaches and general managers.
First-year Machine midfielder Peter Baum, the first overall pick in the 2013 MLL Collegiate Draft, leads the Machine in goals (14) and ranks second on the team in points (17). Baum currently sits third in the league in goals scored and 10th in the league in points. Baum ranks in the top-10 in the Machine’s all-time goals scored and points list despite having played in only six games.
Rookie midfielder Tom Schreiber has been a big contributor since joining the Machine in Week 3 of the season. After an outstanding career at Princeton, the first overall pick in the 2014 MLL Collegiate Draft has tallied seven goals and nine points through four games this season. Schreiber earned Cascade Rookie of the Week honors following the Machine’s victory over the Bayhawks on May 31. Schreiber scored a goal and added an assist in the win while also playing a shutdown two-way game from the midfield.
Second-year attackman Logan Schuss earned his first All-Star Game nod after a standout rookie season and a hot start to his sophomore campaign. Schuss, the Machine’s all-time goal scoring leader, set a club record for points in a game (8) in the Machine’s last outing against the Boston Cannons. Schuss is currently tied for 12th in the league in points and is tied for third on the team in goals scored.
The 24-man MLL All-Star Team will face-off against Team USA on Thursday, June 26 at Harvard Stadium at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast live by CBS Sports Network. For the Machine, the six players participating in the All-Star game are the most in club history. The Machine had four players participate in the 2012 All-Star Game and two players in last year’s game.
