He and His Shadow In Right Field

Out At The Plate!!

Ike the Spike Leads the Crowd

Bats and Balls Were Flying

Fans sitting in the lower level of the State College Spikes' ballpark reach out to catch a foul ball during Sunday night's game in State College.

Flying Bat

It was a night for breaking bats and flying bats. A batter lost his grip on the bat and it flew high and into the stands down the third base line (see top left corner of image) at Sunday night's State College Spikes game. No one was hurt. The bat fell against the stands on the field.

Breaking Bat

The baseball bat splinters and breaks just above the hands of this State College Spikes hitter Sunday night in State College.
