A total of six Machine players, the most in club history, will compete in the upcoming MLL All-Star Game, it was announced by Major League Lacrosse Tuesday morning.

Peter Baum, Tom Schreiber and Logan Schuss were tabbed MLL All-Stars through a balloting process conducted by the league’s coaches and general managers. The trio, along with the rest of the all-stars, will play against Team USA — a squad featuring fellow Machine teammates Kyle Harrison, Marcus Holman and Steele Stanwick — in the 2014 MLL All-Star Game June 26 in Boston, Ma.

Baum, the first overall pick in the 2013 MLL Collegiate Draft, leads the Machine in goals and is second in points, with 14 and 17, respectively — totals ranking him on the team’s top-10 all-time scoring and points lists despite having played in just six games.

Schreiber, the first overall pick in the 2014 MLL Collegiate Draft, has been just as solid since joining the Machine in Week 3. He’s found the back of the net seven times through four games this season, nabbing Cascade Rookie of the Week honors following the Machine’s victory over the Bayhawks on May 31.

Schuss, a second-year attackman, 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 scoring leader, set a club record for points in a game with eight in the Machine’s last outing against the Boston Cannons.

The Machine had four players participate in the 2012 All-Star Game and two players in last year’s game.

The 24-man MLL All-Star Team will face-off against Team USA at Harvard Stadium later this month. The game will be broadcast live by CBS Sports Network.

The Machine returns to action this Saturday, set to host the Rochester Rattlers at 5:30 p.m. at Selby Stadium. Tickets for the game start at $12 and can be purchased by calling 614-754-1973 or visiting contributed to this report.
