April 11, 1979 — Ed Valentine turns in a solid pitching performance and also has a good day at the plate as Tamaqua posts a 7-2 Schuylkill League victory. Valentine allows a pair of first-inning runs but throws shutout ball the rest of the way. He collects two hits, one a double, and knocks in a run to help his cause. Joe Seigenfuse finishes with a pair of doubles and an RBI, while Ken Franz adds a pair of hits, one a double, and knocks in a run. The Blue Raiders, coached by Frank Zlock, also receive a two-run single off the bat of Joe Holmberg.
