Shelbyville Post 37 captured the Kentucky American Legion State Championship in dramatic fashion Friday night thanks to the timely bat of shortstop Kyler Dugle.
“I struggled all night just getting the barrel of the bat on the ball,” Dugle said. “I kept popping everything up, but I knew it would take just one hit to get the run in.”
And Dugle did just that, got his one hit.
Dugle ripped a shot between shortstop and third to score Alex Doyle for the walk-off game winner in the bottom of the ninth.
