Sixty years of Antigo Little League celebrated Saturday
space
Sixty years of chartered Antigo Little League Baseball (1957 to 2017) will be celebrated on Saturday, as organizers, coaches, players, parents and many community members will gather at Al Remington Field, the former Little League Park for the annual opening ceremony, scheduled for 11 a.m.

Over 100 players are registered for Little League in Antigo this season, and the league has expanded, moving from its usual eight teams to nine. The ninth team will be part of a five team minors division, which encompasses ages 8 to 10. Ages 11 to 12 make up the majors division, which again has four teams.

After a short introduction from League V.P. and master of ceremonies Scott Walbeck, all of the players will be introduced by their individual coaches, followed by a number of guests.

Don Emley of the Langlade County Voiture 1204 and the 40 et 8 will talk about their organization and the history behind the Box Cars team name, and fellow 40 et 8 member LaVerne Yonkee will give the invocation. Mayor Bill Brandt will be on hand to help a handful of minors players recite the Little League pledge.

Antigo High School Senior Abi Luerrsen will sing the national anthem, followed by Tim Strasser, who will talk about his dad, the late Tom Strasser and the story behind Tommy’s Braves.

Finally, the season will commence with the ceremonial first pitch, thrown out by Mary Strasser.

Four games are scheduled for Al Remington Field on opening day, with two minors matchups followed by two majors games. The 40 et 8 Box cars will take on the Antigo Times RockHounds at noon, followed by the Waukesha Bearings Raptors and Parson’s River Dogs at 2 p.m., the Aspirus Antigo Clinic Brewers meet Tommy’s Braves at 4 p.m., and then its the Covantage Blue Jays against Neve’s Red Sox to cap off the day at 6 p.m.
