Before we shelve the PCToday scrapbook from this year’s Little League Baseball World Series, let’s thumb through a few more pages featuring members of the Penn College family. Among the ex-Little Leaguers on hand when the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals met at BB&T Ballpark on Aug. 20 was Bucs infielder Max Moroff. And among those happiest to see him was Marlin R. Cromley, a campus employee who was the team’s host when Moroff’s Maitland, Florida, team faced Newtown in the U.S. semifinal at the 2005 series. “Always a wonderful time to meet up with a former player,” said Cromley, a cashier/customer service associate in The College Store, who this year was “uncle” to the Asia-Pacific team representing Seoul, South Korea. “Not to mention meeting a former player that makes it to the majors!” Cromley is one of two team hosts who work at the college; Bruce A. Sechrist, a General Services horticulturist at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center, this year was assigned to the Midwest team from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As noted earlier, the series’ health care team was at the ready for players and fans alike – including scores of students from Penn College’s School of Health Sciences. Representing the college on Sunday’s championship day are (from left) emergency medical services major Keith M. Ray, Montoursville; Bambi A. Hawkins, interim director of paramedic technology programs; and EMS students Michelle K. Waughen, Montgomery; James A. Babinetz, Doylestown; and Abdullah F. Qindil, Houston.
