Pro athletes return to Antigo for jersey presentation Submitted: 12/23/2013
Antigo - Very few athletes make it to the pro level, but two former Antigo classmates have both found success. They reunited today at the high school. Justin Berg and Joe Piskula graduated together in 2002. Piskula played hockey for the Badgers. Then he went on to join the L.A. Kings, Calgary Flames and is now with the Nashville Predators organization. Berg went pro in baseball. He was drafted by the Yankees, then pitched for the Cubs and most recently for the Rockies. They both presented jerseys for display at the high school and were glad to be recognized.
