Ashton Dehn

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Pitcher Ashton Dehn. In a recent Four Rivers Conference game against the Hermann Bearcats, Dehn pitched a complete game with 14 strike outs and one walk. Coach Ryan Bailey says Dehn has a good fastball, a curve and changes speeds to keep batters off balance. Ashton does a good job of getting ahead of hitters. When he's not pitching, Ashton plays a solid right field, where he has displayed good range and a strong arm.
