PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Coming out of a difficult district â€” where it had to face fellow powerhouses DuBois and Warren â€” Punxsy's Little League softball All-Stars know they were lucky to have such solid competition.
And Tuesday and Wednesday, in the Section 1 Tournament hosted by Punxsutawney, the home squad showed the benefit of playing the stout competition early in the tournament with a pair of fairly comfortable wins over Franklin Tuesday and McLane Wednesday.
The mid-summer heat that has been smothering the area over the past week or so is an obvious reminder: We are in the midst of the dog days of summer.
And with All-Star baseball and softball in full swing â€” congrats to the 11- and 12-year-old softball team on its run to the Section 1 final already and good luck to the numerous other teams still competing â€”Â and the Legion and Fed League schedules nearing playoff time, baseball is heavy on my mind.
