Ivan Nielsen didn’t falter when the American Legion Post 62 baseball team needed him Wednesday, including in pressure situations. With two Coal Ridge players on base in the second inning, and one run having already scored, Nielsen struck out the Coal Ridge batter to get the Bulldogs out of the inning relatively unscathed. Although early in the game, a Coal Ridge hit could have altered the outcome of Wednesday’s contest at Craig Middle School for the Bulldogs.
