MARENGO — Highland senior Mack Anglin recently returned from a trip from San Diego, Calif., where he pitched in the Perfect Game All-American Classic after being named an All-American.
Anglin was one of 350 baseball players invited to a national showcase in June and his efforts there, along with his continued solid play throughout the summer, earned him the All-American distinction and an invite to the game in San Diego.
“It’s extremely humbling to be considered one of the top 52 players in the country,” Anglin said. “It was one of my top goals this summer and it’s great that I achieved it.”
The game was played Sunday at Petco Park in San Diego and was between an East and West squad. The showdown was broadcast on the MLB Network. Despite the big stage, Anglin said he, and the rest of the other players, many of which he knew from other summer action, looked at it as just another baseball game.
