The players who participated in the final CPLBCA all-star game on Saturday warmed up during the second half of the day’s second all-star game. As they did, Simeon senior forward Madison Lowery was still on his way to Whitney Young.
Lowery and the Wolverines’ baseball team played in Arlington Heights earlier in the day. The 6-foot-5 first baseman went 2-for-3 against Hersey. He helped Simeon beat the Huskies 7-3, and then he rushed to Whitney Young to try to make it in time for the tip-off of an all-star game that was scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
“I was texting everybody, like, ‘Is it running late? Is it early? What time is it going to start?’” Lowery said. “When I got here, they’d just tipped off. I was really happy.”
Lowery was lacing up his shoes on the bench when the game began.
