Students Donate Time, Gain Experience at Little League World Series


A large group of Pennsylvania College of Technology students offered their assistance while gaining hands-on experience at the 2010 Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport.

Emergency medical services students were stationed in the stadium, working under the leadership of Susquehanna Regional Emergency Medical Services paramedics to respond to medical emergencies among the thousands of fans attending the international event.

Sixty-six junior- and senior-level physician assistant students, accompanied by licensed physician assistant faculty, were stationed round-the-clock in the Little League Complex’s International Grove, where participating teams reside during the event. The students prepare the infirmary and remain on hand to provide urgent care to the players and their coaches. This year, they handled more than 100 infirmary visits.

In addition, several School of Hospitality students helped to prepare and serve a picnic lunch at South Williamsport Community Park for participants in the Challenger Game played in Lamade Stadium the last Saturday of the series and their families. Teams in this year’s Challenger Game hailed from the Cherry Hill (N.J.) American Little League and the Friendswood (Texas) Little League.
