Penn College, Little League Celebrate Anniversaries in ‘Grand Slam’ Fashion

Soggy turned to sunny just in time Wednesday for Pennsylvania College of Technology to once again welcome visitors to Williamsport for the Little League Baseball World Series. On the evening before play begins in South Williamsport, the college hosted its traditional cookout for the Series teams on the lawn outside the Bush Campus Center. Little League players, coaches, team “uncles,” umpires and baseball legend Dave Winfield enjoyed picnic fare and the company of one another before they (and their college hosts) participated in the Grand Slam Parade down West Fourth Street. Accompanied by the college’s ever-popular Wildcat mascot, Penn College volunteers handed out giveaways – including balsa airplanes and commemorative pins – on their well-received journey downtown. Rounding out the teams’ campus visit was a brief stop in The Gallery at Penn College for a Little League-related art exhibit. The college was featured in at least two live newscasts from campus: on WPVI in Philadelphia and on CBS Chicago. And Patriot News coverage, which was also picked up in Alabama, included a roundup of photos at the PennLive website.
