Clinton’s T.J. Baker has one more high school game left.
Baker, the Redskin senior who led the football team to the state finals and the baseball team into the quarterfinals, will play in the Michigan High School Coaches Association All-Star game Thursday at Comerica Park in Detroit.
“It’s definitely an honor to be there,” Baker said. “The best players in the state are going to be playing in the game, so just to have that label and be a part of the game is pretty special.”
The game is 7 p.m. Thursday.

Five TCCers chosen to All-State squad

Clinton’s T.J. Baker was the only TCC player chosen to the Michigan High School Baseball Coaches Association All-State team announced recently.

Baker was also chosen to the All-State All-Academic team, along with Austin Sandusky (Morenci) and Reid Olmstead (Summerfield) and Nolan Anschuetz (Madison).

In softball, four TCC players made the All-State squad: Elizabeth Barkel (1b) and Kristen Forest (3b) of Clinton, Emily Ritzenthaler (3b) of Whiteford and Lindy Mynhier (C) of Morenci.

Honorable mention choices were McKenzie Hilton and Allison VanBrandt of Morenci, plus Megan Nelson, Megan Burton and Ashleigh Donahey of Clinton.
