With the NFL Player's Association and the owners reaching an agreement last week and training camps and free agency already in full swing, I know that football should be the only thing on my mind. Strangely, though, the only things I can think about are baseball and softball.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After losing the first championship game early Monday afternoon, Punxsy's 13- and 14-year old VFW Teener League All-Stars bounced back to win the winner-take-all championship game in the late afternoon to earn the title of state champs.
Trailing 4-1, Punxsy scored nine runs in the top of the fourth inning to take a 10-4 lead.
The big inning would prove to be enough as Brycen Paulinellie pitched a complete game, allowing six runs on nine hits and striking out ten, to earn the 14-6 win.
The Punxsy Scrappers placed second in the 12 and under division of the Groundhog Little League Baseball Tournament last weekend. The team includes (front, from left) Canaan Knox, Tyler Getch, Lance Pennington, Brandon Matthews; (middle) Tyler Richardson, Jacob Tyger, Kevin Hutton, Jacob Weaver, Sammy Gigliotti, Trenton Stouffer; (back) coach Tim Tyger, Brady Snyder, Devin Kelly, coach Kevin Knox, Drew Maines and manager Brad Gigliotti.
