[August 16, 2008]  On Wednesday, the Lincoln American Legion baseball team had its banquet for the Senior and Junior Legion baseball teams. The junior team was honored for its season and its trip to the Illinois Junior Legion state tournament. The senior team was honored for its season and its second consecutive year of qualifying for the division tournament.

The senior team also honored Ross Bruenger, of Clinton, as this year's winner of the C. Wayne Schrader Award. This award is presented to the player who displays the attributes, on and off the field, that best represent Lincoln American Legion Post 263. Ross was also recognized for his significant contribution to this year's team, as he won more games than any other pitcher, as well as being a major contributer in the field and at the plate.

This year's John West Most Valuable Player award was presented to two players. Michael Fleshman, of Lincoln, was honored for his major contributions to the team in pitching, defense and at the plate. Michael played in every game this year, hit lead-off for most of the year and also was a starting pitcher. Austin Maske, of Mount Pulaski, was honored for his major contribution to the team also. Austin led the team in batting average (.488), runs scored (18), hits (39), triples (4), home runs (4), stolen bases (11) and runs batted in (21).
