Ohio shortstop gives game ball to player whose walk-off hit cost him state title

Quote:
Instead, Puthoff eventually decided the ball had to be with Niemeyer because of his late-inning heroics. Rather than send the ball through the mail or some other backchannel, Puthoff wrote a note explaining his decision, then hand-delivered the ball to the Niemeyer family himself.

The story original came as a result of Bryan Niemeyer, the father of Jon, who posted an image of the ball and note to his Twitter account.

Pretty classy move by the shortstop and delivering in person made it an even better gesture. High school sports get a lot of criticism sometimes but many positive lessons are still learned by high school athletes.

Very neat of that kid to do that. I think those 2 schools who played in the state championship were something like 12 miles apart. Pretty neat for those communities. Similar to last year, when Hiland and Waynedale played in the state title.

during the season Russia actually run ruled Minster ,I think the score was 17-6

two Great HS programs and two excellent school systems...lots of cousins between schools.. lots of Russia people working in Minster and Lots of Minster people work in Russia


was a GREAT game...and even better what way to end the season on what the Puthoff boy and his family did to give the ball to the Niemeyer boy....CLASS ACTS!!!!
