PINE GROVE – Baseball can be so cruel that at times it can make you sick.
But when it’s played well, it’s a thing of beauty.
Such was the case Monday at Stump Stadium in the Schuylkill Baseball League semifinals.
Tamaqua’s performance was a thing of beauty as it excelled in all facets of the game.
The Raiders used the splendid pitching of Matt Minchhoff, some great defensive plays, and timely hitting from Zach Coleman, Owen Bates and Brady Akins to vault into Wednesday’s championship game with an impressive 3-1 victory over Schuylkill Haven.
