When Drake Fellows asks Nick Dalesandro for something, he usually gets it.
“I’ve been best friends with Drake since I was 5 years old,” Dalesandro said. “He’s like a little brother to me.”
But one thing Dalesandro wasn’t going to give away was the chance to be on the mound when Joliet Catholic won a state title — even a summer one.
So when Fellows told Dalesandro in the dugout at Benedictine University Thursday night, “Come on, let me finish it,” his buddy’s answer was, “I can’t do it.”
And Dalesandro didn’t waver, even when Nazareth rallied in the bottom of the seventh inning in the Phil Lawler Summer Classic final, as he led the Hilltoppers to a 3-1 win.Nazareth Academy
