Three All Stars
The West Coast League all-star game is July 23 in Victoria and three AppleSox have been selected to participate. On the North Division team are first baseman Conner Spencer, outfielder Brett Stephens and pitcher Trevor Lubking. In some weird, quirk way of figuring it, the league has Ed Knaggs coaching the South squad. What did Victoria do...pull off the “it’s my bat and ball, if I can’t play I’m taking them and going home” routine?
