On July 26 the Elsberry American Legion Post #226 sent 17 of its best players to New Haven to compete in the A and AA All-Star Games.

Jeff Keiser’s A team sent John Hogan, Blake Kendall and Steve Boedeker.

Spencer Keiser was also selected from that team but was unavailable due to the fact that he was playing in the Show Me State Games at the time.

Jason Howard’s A team sent Joey Marko, Jon Almus, Jacob Stolle, Caleb Dillon, Tyler Turnbull and Joe Martin.

These nine players traveled to New Haven to form a portion of the Northern All-Star Team at the A level.

Michael Martin, who coached first base for Howard’s team during the regular season, was asked to attend the game and serve as a third base coach.
