On Wednesday, May 11th, the Central Bucks West High School Bucks varsity boy’s baseball team defeated the Patriots of Central Bucks East High School by a score of 8-7. The Bucks had only beaten the Patriots four other times in varsity baseball since 2004, with one of the wins coming earlier this season. It wasn’t a total sweep for West however, as the junior varsity squad for the Patriots was able to come away with a win.
In addition to honoring the seniors of East, the game was also special in that it was held at Joseph E. Hanusey Community Park for the first time since its grand opening in 2014, something that many people in Plumstead Township hope to continue.
“We think it’s a really great environment for the kids to play in,” said Plumstead Little League President Mike Harte. “We love that we can offer somethings that other places can’t to really make the game that much more special.”
