Skyline High School senior, Eamon Horwedel, was selected to play in the Michigan High School Baseball Coach’s Association’s Annual East-West All-Star Game, to be played at Comerica Park in Detroit, Friday, June 29 at 7 pm.
A total of 44 players were selected to play in the game, 22 on each squad. Horwedel will play for the West team, and will be a teammate of Saline High School’s Cole Daniels. They are the only two local players selected. Horwedel is the first player in Skyline’s history to be selected for the honor. Daniels joins a long list of Saline Hornet players that have been chosen over the years.
For the season, Horwedel went 6-3 as a starting pitcher. He threw 55 2/3 innings and had an ERA of 1.38 with 82 strikeouts and 6 walks and a WHIP of .880. At the plate, Horwedel hit .402 for the Eagles, with 2 HR’s, 3 triples, 6 doubles and 27 RBI.
Along with making the All-Star team, Horwedel also was selected First-Team All-Conference and All-District with fellow Skyline teammates, seniors Darryn Davis and Sean Haddlesey. Fellow senior, Jack Winger was an Honorable Mention All-Conference selection for the Eagles as well.
Following the All-Star game, Horwedel will head south to Athens, Ohio, to enroll early at Ohio University, where he will be a member of the Bobcats baseball team next year. Fellow Eagle teammate, Darryn Davis, will join Horwedel in the MAC conference next season when he will suit up for the Toledo Rockets.
