Centre County softball teams keep battling the bats to continue in the PIAA softball tournament. This afternoon I traveled to cover Philipsburg-Osceola take on Beaver at St. Francis University. I had never photographed at the Red Flash stadium, and I spent most of the game wondering around the field looking for the right angle and location to get clean images. I did this as the Lady Mounties started on a high note, fell apart for several inning then came back in the seventh for the win.
Throughout the major league baseball season a Philipsburg-Osceola native was in our news regularly. When playoffs and the world series rolled around he appeared even more. Matt Adams was a staple hitter and player for the St. Louis Cardinals this season during their run to the World Series. Though the Cardinals didn’t come home with a win, Philipsburg residents still welcomed home one of their own with sirens, bells and excitement. The town held a mini parade for Adams today as he returned home for the off season and Cardinals red and white lined the streets.
