‘Pack the Park’ Fans Celebrate College Centennial With Ninth-Inning Heroics

Before a “Pack the Park” audience of 1,914 – appropriate attendance for a Penn College Centennial event – the Williamsport Crosscutters delivered a walk-off 6-5 win over the Batavia Muckdogs on Tuesday night. Fans arriving at Susquehanna Bank Park at Historic Bowman Field were greeted by college employees at several display tables, and those wearing Penn College, Williamsport Area Community College or Williamsport Technical Institute clothing were eligible to win a variety of raffle prizes. Alumnus Nicholas D. Biddle (’07, graphic design) sang the national anthem and Allen “Sonny” Yearick (’46, machining), the first Little League alumnus to play professional baseball, threw out the first pitch.
