HARRISBURG, Sept. 6 2011 State Sen. John N Wozniak and state Rep. Mike Hanna
announced today that Clinton County’s record-shattering little league team has accepted their offer to visit the State Capitol to be recognized for their memorable accomplishments.
“For those weeks in August, Clinton County’s baseball team became Pennsylvania’s team,” Wozniak said. “It’s fitting that we take some time in Harrisburg to mark their achievements and show our appreciation.”
FIFA Little League advanced further in the Little League World Series than any Pennsylvania team in 20 years, drew more than 160,000 fans to the games, and attracted attention from across the nation.
“Our hearts are filled with pride in Clinton County as we welcome home the FIFA Little League team, coaches and parents following their historic run in the Little League World Series,” Hanna said. “These extraordinary young men have truly demonstrated the best of what our region, and Pennsylvania as a whole, has to offer.”
The team’s players and coaches are scheduled to visit the Capitol on Sept. 27 to be recognized by both the House and the Senate.
The two lawmakers also announced the release of a free, printable 11 x 17-inch commemorative poster on Hanna’s and Wozniak’s websites. The poster recognizes both the players and the fans that supported them. Fans without access to a high-resolution printer can pick up a 12.5 x 19-inch, full-color version at Reeses Print Shop, 7 East Main Street in Lock Haven for $1.
