Recent Weyauwega-Fremont High School graduate Eric Keenan competed in the 28th annual Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Classic June 24-25 at E.J. Schneider Field in Oshkosh.
Keenan was selected as one of the 18 North All-Stars after hitting .444 in the Central Wisconsin 8 Conference conference this season and earning unanimous first-team all-conference honors. The County Post West and County Post East also named Keenan as a spring sports all-star and he was also named to the first all-district team and received all-state honorable mention from the coaches Association.
The North All-Stars posted a 2-1 record in the Classic. The North defeated the South team 6-2 and the West squad 4-1 before dropping a 10-9 decision to the East team.
Keenan played second base, shortstop and third base in the three games.
“Eric’s versatility as an infielder while in high school made it easy for him to play any infield position,” W-F baseball coach Jeff Fahser said. “His defensive skills shined, as he made no errors in the three games and caught the final out of game two on a sinking line drive to his left while playing third base.”
Keenan also went 2×5 in the three games, with two singles, a run scored and an RBI. He put the North ahead to stay in game one, as he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to make the score 3-2 at the time. In game two, he had an infield hit that he beat out and the West All-Stars later threw away to keep the North rally going.
“It was a great honor for Eric to be nominated, but it was awesome to see Eric do so well at the All-Star Classic,” Fahser said.
Keenan will play college baseball at Carroll University in Waukesha next season.
