Steele Takes MVP Honor at Showcase Game

From KOLR-10 Sports

Southwest Missouri’s East All-Stars scored eight runs in the final three innings Saturday, rallying to an 11-9 win over the West in the third annual Shrine Mosque Baseball Showcase at Hammons Field.

Trailing 7-3 in the seventh, the East plated five in the inning before surrendering the lead back in the bottom half. But a three-run ninth-inning rally made the difference, as Springfield Catholic’s Josef Luthy drove the final two runs in on a single to right field.

Hollister’s Jenner Steele earned MVP honors for the winning side.
