Engelkes picked to represent Michigan

Sixth-grader Jake Engelkes of Belmont has been chosen as one of 12 baseball players in the state to represent Michigan 11U in the USSSA Jr. All-State Championship Tournament to be held in Fishers, Indiana August 9-12. Engelkes plays travel baseball for Elite, and will attend East Rockford Middle School this fall. He is only one of six players chosen from the west side of the state, with the other players coming from Detroit. Engelkes started his baseball career in Rockford Little League, but has played travel ball for the past two years.

“It is an honor to play with the best players across the state,” said Engelkes. “I will try to represent Michigan, and Rockford, well.”

Jake is the son of Ross and Barb Engelkes and sister to Lauren, a sophomore at Rockford High School.
