DULUTH, Minn.- With spring athletics finally starting up, our athlete is Ben Pederson the right handed pitcher for Duluth Marshall.
Standing at 6 foot 5, there is no doubt this guy is a force to be reckoned with. In Monday’s home opener against Aitkin, the Hilltoppers ace recorded 10 strikeouts in 5 innings of work. In his junior season, Pederson verbally committed to continue his academic and athletic career at the University of Missouri come the fall of 2019. He signed his National Letter of Intent this past fall. In addition to dominating the mound Pederson also has an established presence at third base and at the plate.
If you want to see Pederson and the rest of the Hilltoppers in action their next games are Saturday 4/13 and Tuesday 4/16 at Wade Stadium. To nominate someone you know for Prep Athlete of the Week message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at 921 The Fan.
