2nd Annual 10th District All-Star Game
On July 17th, Barrington hosted the 2nd Annual 10th District All-Star Game. Representatives from 10 of the 11 district teams took the field for a fun game that showcased the talent in Lake County Legion baseball. The East Team, comprised of players from Deerfield, Fox Lake, Gurnee, Lake Forest, and Round Lake, competed against the West Team, made up of players from Barrington, Lake Villa, Lake Zurich, Mundelein, and Wauconda.
In the end, the East Team was victorious by a score of 7-6. Chris Nesterowicz (Fox Lake) pitched three strong innings in relief to secure the victory, while Henry Kusiak (Fox Lake) nailed down the 2 inning save. The East team piled up 12 hits, with big blasts coming off the bat of Peter Turelli (Lake Forest) for a home run and Jimmy Friel (Fox Lake) for a 2 run double.
The West Team was led by Brock Glavey (Wauconda), who started the game on the mound and went 2-2 with a double and triple in the ball game. Also securing big knocks were Simon Varitek (Lake Villa) going 2-2 with 2 RBI and a double and Sean Davis (Barrington) with a 2 RBI triple.
