Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau Post 25 players Christian Ludeman, Brock McCormick and Olin Rawson have been selected to Tuesday's American Legion All-Star Game at Anchorage’s Mulcahy Stadium.
Post 25 coaches Joe Tompkins and Jeremy Ludeman noted some attributes for their team leaders.
Olin Rawson is noted as a good teammate. A player who always works hard and never gives up. He plays outfield, first base and is a top pitcher in the rotation.
They also mentioned Rawson "likes long walks on the beach and skipping rocks."
Brock McCormick was noted for out working teammates and opponents. His work ethic is such he will run through a brick wall to help his team win. A silent leader and soft spoken but will speak up when teammates need to hear something or a coach.
They mentioned McCormick "likes short walks on the beach and finding swimming holes."
Christian Ludeman is noted as the team's best long ball hitter. He starts at first base but can pitch and is a good teammate.
They noted it would not be surprising to find him on a long walk on the beach.
The Post 25 coaches also noted the contributions of Oliver Mendoza, one of the best middle infielders with the quickest hands and who only likes his grandma's tacos.
Ludeman, McCormick and Rawson will join American Division selections from South Post 4 - Reid Brock, Kellen Curtis, Isaac Johnson and Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year Dylan Maltby; Dimond Post 21 - Alex Bruce, Luke Smith and Logan Sweet; North Pole Post 30 - Ethan Clifford, Gavin Fischer and Ethan Frollo; Bartlett Post 28 - Eli Corwin, John Grantier and Connor Sessoms; Chugiak Post 33 - Andrew Gruszynski, Hunter Rau and Preston Rau; and Palmer Post 15 - Jason Gunderson, Kaden Ketchum and Evan Walker.
