Punxsy’s John J. Fisher Post No. 62 Senior Legion saw starting pitcher Joey DiPietro pitch a near-perfect game in the first round of the Jefferson County Senior Legion playoffs against Curwensville on Wednesday in Punxsy. DiPietro allowed just one hit and one walk, and Punxsy’s bats came to life in the fifth to enact the mercy rule. For a full recap, grab a copy of Thursday's print edition.
