PCT baseball players to help at Classic

Some 20 Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball players, led by head coach Chris Howard, will be responsible for the field tarp in case of inclement weather at the MLB Little League Classic on Sunday.

The Wildcats have served in that capacity since the inaugural game in 2017.

The team will go through several days of training prior to the big game. On the Thursday and Friday before the game, the team will have about 10 hours of practice moving and removing the tarp, while Saturday brings a 12-hour standby day in case of inclement weather. On game day, the team will arrive at 7 a.m. and help where needed around the park before the 7 p.m. start time.
