Zumwalt South's Grim switches to Mizzou (St. Louis Post Dispatch)
Fort Zumwalt South righthander Gerrion Grim thought he found his college destination in July when he made a verbal commitment to Southern Illinois Edwardsville.

But the Bulldogs senior found what he considers a better fit last week, and thus he decommitted from SIUE and pledged to the University of Missouri.

"I just think it's the best fit for me, academically and athletically," Grim said.

He said, in Zumwalt South's 6-5 win over Howell to win the district title at Zumwalt East last season, Grim came up huge and showed a flash of what he was capable of doing.

In that game, Grim gave up three runs on six hits in just under three innings of work, but he kept the Bulldogs in the game and allowed Zumwalt South a chance at victory, of which the team took full advantage.

"A lot of people were ready to just give Howell the title right there because they played so well and were the up-and-coming team even last season," DeShurley said.
"Gerrion went out and threw a big game. He really showed what he can do and showed how effective of a pitcher he is. He kept us in that game and really gave us a chance to win it."

Grim had four different pitches in his repertoire against Zumwalt East: a four-seam fastball, the slider, the curveball, and the split-fingered fastball. The pitcher credited South pitching coach Bill Friedel’s preparation skills on evaluating East's batters.

“Coach Friedel does a great job of preparing us,” Grim said. “He tells us to get ahead, stay ahead, and to mix up our speed and hit our locations. He tells us to stay ahead of our hitters and make them hit your pitch. He’s taught this to us from day one.”
