First pitches

Members of the 1957 Altoona team which won the NABF National Tournament at the Cricket Field in Altoona, were honored at ceremonies at Vets Field on Thursday. Each of the members threw a ceremonial first pitch to a member of the 2007 Kelley Federation champion Martin Oil team. On the left are Chad Coho (36), Justin Miller and Jake Manning (3) catching the throws. Second from the right is Tyrone native Dick Rupert (throwing left-handed), now a resident of nearby Petersburg, who was a member of the 1957 championship team. (The Daily Herald/Stacey Manning)
