July 10, 1947 Wayne "Dutch" Snyder fires a three-hit shutout to lead Mauch Chunk to a 5-0 Panther Valley League victory over Tamaqua. Snyder allows just two walks and strikes out 15 batters. At the plate he helps his own cause by delivering an RBI double. Joe Watto collects two hits and knocks in a run for the winners, managed by Willard "Woo" Leopold. "Choc" Dugan adds an RBI single while Daniel "Pete" McGinley and Allen "Hannah" Morgan each add a hit and run scored.
