Beating the heat with some indoor fun

Ballplayers face a formidable lineup!

Four members of the Williamsport Crosscutters, back at BBT Park after a trio of early-season games in State College, visited Penn College’s Camp ESCAPE on Monday morning. Pitchers Orestes Melendez and Ethan Lindow, infielder Stoney O’Brien and right fielder Danny Mayer joined the youngsters for dodgeball in the Field House, signed a number of items brought in for autographing and met with some very inquisitive campers. (In case anyone is wondering, hockey is the second-favorite sport for many of the teammates.) The ‘cutters face three home games against the Auburn Doubledays this week.
