Anthracite All-Star baseball game Saturday at Pine Grove
The Anthracite Baseball Coaches Association Senior All Star Game will be held at Stump Stadium in Pine Grove Saturday night. Along with the game, there will also be a hall of fame induction ceremony and charity event.
The Hall of Fame inductions will take place between 5:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. with the first pitch tentatively scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
The TIMES NEWS area will have a strong presence in the event, with Jim Thorpe's Pat Duvignead and Panther Valley's Richie Smith being named to the Division I team. Marian's Nick Kweder and Weatherly's Kevin Hinkle will represent the Division II team.
Tamaqua's Jeff Reading was to be a Division I coach and Derek Rottet, Luke Matsago, Troy Reinhardt, Josh Zehner, Travis Miller and Matt Yeakle were also scheduled to represent the Division I team. However, the Blue Raiders will not participate after claiming the district baseball crown and advancing to states.
