American Legion State Championship Preview – “The Holder” Nate Pruneau

By Brian Garner for Live Stream STL Media

You could single out several people who had a hand in the Zone 4 Championship for Post 253 but one player in particular stands out to me. Nate Pruneau pitched two innings of shut out relief against a volatile Jackson 158. After Festus gave up six runs in five innings Coach Aaron Mayer called on Pruneau to stop the bleeding. He pitched a scoreless sixth and seventh scattering three hits and allowed his teammates to gain a walk off win in the bottom of the seventh as Festus 253 wins 7-6 to advance to the championship game. A very clutch performance!
