After state final loss, Russia's Puthoff brings game-winning hit ball to Minster senior
By Colin Foster
Minster's Jon Niemeyer was the reason Russia left the field heartbroken after the Division IV state baseball final.
From that moment came a heartwarming story.
On June 3, Niemeyer's single in the bottom of the seventh inning allowed Jared Huelsman to score the winning run in a 2-1 victory over the Raiders at Huntington Park in Columbus. The hit gave the Wildcats their third state title in the last seven years and also denied the Raiders their first title since 1971. [More]
