PUNXSUTAWNEY â€”Â Femco Machine's Senior League baseball team held a 4-2 lead entering the sixth inning against Fox Township's GKN, but a pair of big innings in the sixth and the seventh pushed the visiting squad past Femco 13-6 Wednesday evening in Punxsutawney.
Things started out on a high note for Femco after giving up one run in the top of the first, as it answered with a pair in the home half to take the lead.
GKN's run came off a leadoff single by Andy Geci, a walk, a fielder's choice and a fielding blunder by Femco.
Every once in a while, you're a part of something that you know is special â€” a little piece of history.
One such occurrence from my past comes to mind.
It was Saturday, July 27, 1997, and I was spending the weekend camping with my grandparents in Cook Forest.
My grandparents, my cousins, my brother and I had just finished a game of cards, and as was usually the case in the evenings at camp, we were listening to the Pirates game on the radio.
