Peter Rasmusen, son of Larry and Marina Rasmusen, formerly of Huntley and currently residing in McHenry, has been chosen for the International Athletic Foundation, Inc. baseball team. The games take place during the end of August in Aruba, Netherland Antilles. He is the grandson of Hubert and Vera Rasmusen of Huntley. Rasmusen spent the winter suffering from bronchitis. He recovered just in time to tryout for the Pan American games baseball team in May. He didn't make that team, but was invited to play on the international team. Peter is hoping to play catcher on the team, though any position that lets him play would be great. "I'm really happy to be going," he said. "I hope we win." Tryouts were tough. About 5,000 boys across the United States ran sprints, and worked on fielding drills, infield drills, and hitting practice. Each participant was ranked on a scale of 1-5 in each skill. The highest ranking were chosen for the PanAm team, while the rest were either chosen for the international team or told they hadn't made the cut. Only three were chosen from the Chicagoland area. The 12-15 man team leaves the U.S. August 16 for one exhibition game and five regular games over seven days with teams from Aruba. The foundation is affiliated with the International Olympic Committee. Rasmusen has been in the McHenry Junior Youth league baseball program since he was 7. This year he is on the Cubs (14-0), coached by his father. He has been instructed in hitting by Bobby Roan, the McHenry County College baseball coach and at Grand Slam in Palatine, and doing arm exercises to improve his hitting and fielding. Peter is planning to try out again next year. In the future he would like to play for a college team. Congratulations Huntley Harvestors!
