This weekend, the Tigers visited “Happy Valley” for a 3 game series against the State College Spikes.
Medlar Field at Lubrano Park is located on the campus of Penn State University.
Built in 2006, the stadium became the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified stadium in the world.
The field is in the shadow of Beaver Stadium, home of the Penn State football team.
A packed house saw the Tigers take both games of the series. (The game on Sunday was rained out).
Tonight, Pitcher Brennan Smith and DH/1B Dean Green will represent the Tigers at the New York-Penn League AllStar Game in Lowell.
The game can be heard on WICH 1310 or at www.cttigers.com.
Justin Sheinis, the Tigers’ Media Relations Manager, travels with the team during road trips. Sheinis broadcasts all the away games and partners with Eric Knighton for the home games. All 76 Tigers games can be heard on WICH 1310 and at www.cttigers.com.
A few pics that Justin took from the past roadtrip:
The Tigers played at Vermont June 23rd-June 25th.
Centennial Field is the oldest ballpark in America.
Located on the University of Vermont campus, the field’s first game was played in 1906, 105 years ago.
Vermont’s Manager Rick Magnante addresses his team before a game.
No surprise as to why Saturday’s game was suspended.
The Tigers then traveled to Troy, NY for 3 games against the Tri-City ValleyCats.
Great view from the pressbox at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.
The Tigers take BP before taking on the ValleyCats.
