Picnic/Parade Doubleheader Opens LLB World Series

Pennsylvania College of Technology once again helped to welcome visitors to Williamsport for the Little League Baseball World Series, which begins Thursday and concludes Aug. 26. Prior to formation of the Grand Slam Parade near the northwest corner of campus, the college hosted its traditional picnic for players, coaches, team uncles, umpires and other LLBWS notables. Among the highlights of the march down West Fourth Street was a 1939 Buick Roadmaster from the college’s automotive restoration technology major, commemorating the year that Little League was born. The car is featured on this year’s Penn College trading pin, which was attached to a cleverly designed baseball card and distributed along the parade route.
