While others on Festus Post 253 may garner the headlines, one of the main reasons Festus won the Zone 4 Championship was the hitting contribution of the designated hitter in Gabe King who was batting in the ninth spot in the order. King contributed a 2-2 night, 2 walks, 2 RBIs, a triple and three runs scored, one of which was the walk off winning run to put Festus into the state playoffs in Sedalia, Missouri. King is currently batting .367 with 11 hits in 30 at bats.
