The state playoffs are underway in softball and once again, Pates Park in Allentown is the place to be.
While no local teams are in action in round 2, Pates is still holding a tripleheader and as always the ambience is like no other! Three umpires are on the field and there many more in the stands. Cheering and boos coming all throughout the stadium but hey, thats what makes an exciting game
Throw in about a dozen stolen bases and a couple of home runs and the fans got what they paid for.
In the end, Pine Grove taking game one over Dock Mennonite 17-3, behind two home runs from Trish Kopinetz. Pine Grove advances to the PIAA 3A Semi-finals on Monday.
