Stonestreet and Downs named All-Stars
By TAYLOR HAWKINS
On Friday May 24, Manchester Academy’s Will Stonestreet will end his high school baseball career by playing in the MAIS All Star Game. He will be playing for the North squad.
The senior ended his final season at Manchester with a 5-1 record and a 2.25 ERA. He also produced a .335 batting average and a .975 fielding percentage.
MA head baseball coach A.J. Downs was not surprised at Stonestreet’s selection.
“Will has been a player for us since the seventh grade,” Downs said. “He has really turned not only into a great pitcher but a great all around player. He is a bulldog on the mound that will give you every opportunity to win.”
Stonestreet feels honored to have the opportunity that most do not receive.
“It feels great,” Stonestreet said. “It's something. Not everybody can say they had the chance to do this, and I'm just thankful that I get to be one of the select few who get this opportunity.”
