Sibling rivalry aiding Astros win column

7/09/09 (Thu)

Justin Heldstab is in his final year of eligibility for American Legion baseball. The former Mandan player has led the Hazen team as their number two pitcher in the rotation this season. But his younger brother Jeremy is looking to keep the Heldstab tradition strong in the Astros bullpen.

In his first year of legion eligibility, 16-year-old Jeremy has stepped in to the pitching rotation with relative ease. He has no interest in playing second fiddle to big bro, however, as the two not only compete for bragging rights on pitching statistics but a quieter battle for on-base percentage and double counts.
