3 Loggers ready to make impression at NWL All-Star Game

MEQUON, Wis. (WXOW) Three La Crosse Loggers will showcase their talents tonight at the Northwoods League All-Star Game.

Mike Nadratowski, Ryne Birk and Breckin Williams should all see playing time for the South Division squad at Kapco Park in Mequon.

The all-star game is more than just an honor, it's also a chance to play in front of big league scouts.

Nadratowski is hitting .271 this season with 21 runs batted in and playing some nifty centerfield.

Birk leads the team with a .326 average and 25 runs batted in.

Williams has been lights-out coming out of the bullpen with 12 saves and an earned run average of 1.95.

"It's a pretty cool feeling. I really didn't expect anything like that. Getting named to that is pretty special," said Birk, the Loggers 2nd baseman.

"It's an honor. It's something I'm really excited about. Just to represent the Loggers and my university too, it's kind of cool to make a name for yourself. I'm just pretty proud to be going there," Nadratowski said.

"It'll be nerve-racking. I'm a small town kid. It's a career changer. You go out and perform well there you might get to play pro ball. That's everybody's dream," said Williams.

The Loggers return to regular season action Thursday in Green Bay.
