Tonight in Williamsport, PA

I grew up just down the road (or up-the-river) from Williamsport, PA, the home of Little League Baseball. I even worked for one of the local radio stations one summer and had the great pleasure of helping do color-commentary for one of the consolation games our station sent overseas to the Armed Forces Network.

Well just down the road (or up-the-river) in the other direction from my hometown is Lock Haven. And this year, for the first time since 1969, a local team from the area back there in the West Branch Susquehanna Valley is in the Little League World Series. The Keystone Little League starts play at 8:00 (EDT) tonight against the team from La Grange, KY. Since it is local, they have had to move the game to the bigger stadium to accommodate the expected crowd. (It will also be on ESPN.)

Just thought I would share the old hometown news.

Go Keystone.
