Four of them were set to start. Among the reserves was future Yankee Roberto Kelly.
But the A-C Yankees were also sending others to the AA mid-summer classic. Two A-C Yankee coaches were going. Trainer Mike Heifferon also went, according to The Schenectady Gazette.
Heifferon served as trainer for the AA Yankees that year and into the next. He would also stick with the Yankees system at least through 1992.
Heifferon stayed with Albany-Colonie through 1988. He then made the jump to AAA Columbus for 1989. That year, he also served in the all-star game. He was also the hometown trainer - the game was held that year in Columbus.
Heifferon remained watching over Clipper injuries until 1992. After that season, new trainer Darren London took over.
