Red Robins' Wegter ends career at All-Star Classic
space
For Antigo’s Justen Wegter, his high school baseball career did not come to a close until he attended the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Classic held June 28 and 29.

Playing at E.J. Schneider Field at Oshkosh North High School, Wegter earned his way onto the West team after a nomination by Red Robin coach Dan Bastle.

“Justen was nominated because of his consistency throughout his high school career,” Bastle said. “He has great numbers fielding and hitting.

“He's worked hard and always succeeded in stressful situations. Off the field, he's worked, volunteered and has managed to stay away from negative peer pressure.”

Seventy-two high school seniors throughout the state made the trek to Oshkosh as the elite players were divided into four teams.

North encompasses the Green Bay/Fox Valley area, East out of the Milwaukee region, South made up of Madison area athletes and West which draws from La Crosse, Stevens Point and Eau Claire areas. This was the 30th anniversary of the event.

Playing a round robin format, West, North and South all finished with a 2-1 record while East went 0-3.

Appleton North’s Clark Eagan was named the Tom Nygaard MVP winner for scoring the winning run in Game 6 in addition to hitting a 3-run homer in the first game.

Others from the area on the West team were Bo Howard, Marshfield, Josh Nielsen, D.C. Everest and Eric Zelhofer, Stevens Point.

In three games of action, Wegter finished the tournament hitting 2-for-5 with a pair of singles.

"Being able to represent the town of Antigo was a huge honor,” Wegter said. “The whole experience was really fun. I was pretty successful at the tournament so that made it even more enjoyable.”

He is a son of Jim Wegter and Nancy Wegter.
