Schuck on a Truck: Baseball Player of the Year Wesley Robertson discusses record-setting season at Illini West

Play Video

CARTHAGE, Ill. — If the best is yet to come, Wesley Robertson will rewrite the Illini West baseball program’s entire record book.

What he did during his sophomore campaign was pretty impressive as a starting point.

The third baseman set the Chargers’ single-season record for RBIs, driving in 50 runs as Illini West went 28-5 and reached the Class 2A sectional championship game. He also hit .481 with a .560 on-base percentage and a 1.272 slugging percentage. He collected 12 doubles and four home runs, while striking out just seven times in 131 plate appearances.

And the 2024 Muddy River Sports Player of the Year has two more years to add to those numbers.

Robertson joined Muddy River Sports Editor Matt Schuckman on the tailgate of his pickup to discuss the Chargers’ 28-win season, the Player of the Year honor and playing alongside his older brother on the left side of the infield for this edition of “Schuck on a Truck.”
