Young Brandon Breidegan is so much more than a thrower, he’s a pitcher. And when Breidegan was on the mound, Fredericksburg had a chance.

On Sunday evening at Fredericksburg’ Earl Wenger Memorial Field, Breidegan earned a no-decision, as his F-burg side dropped a 6-5, eight-inning affair to Richland, in the second championship game of the Lebanon County American Legion baseball league’s six-team, double-elimination tournament. But after the contest, Breidegan earned the Warren ‘Lefty’ Grumbine award for his outstanding pitching during the local summer league’s postseason.

Earlier in the tournament, Breidegan had twirled a three-hit, 5-0 shutout of Annville at Earl Wenger Memorial Field. In that particular contest, Breidegan kept his pitch count below 80, struck out two and walked three.
