ROCKFORD-Two Rockford Aviators are ready to suit up for the Frontier League All-Star game Wednesday. Closer Gerardo Sanchez and starter Joey Wagman are those pitchers.

The game will be played at the home of the Gateway Grizzlies near St. Louis. What are the Aviators' stars looking forward to the most about the game?

"Probably to see all the other players," says Wagman. "There's a lot of really good players in this league, and we've played against most of the teams so far. A lot of talented guys, and to just be able to hang out with them, and see what they're all about. It's probably what I'm most excited about."

"I'm excited to go to St. Louis just overall and, you know, playing against the best here in the league. I'm really excited," says Sanchez.
