Tyrone Mayor Bill Latchford, presented the Tyrone baseball program with an official Borough of Tyrone proclamation celebrating the Golden Eagles’ state championship.

During a gathering organized by the Tyrone Golden Eagle Baseball Boosters, Mayor Latchford addressed the team and coaches emphasizing the Borough Council’s great pride by stating, “Your commitment to being physically fit and highly principled, coupled with the desire to do your very best, not only has earned you the respect of your peers, but will serve as your legacy to future baseball teams for years to come. Champions in every sense of the word, you have made us very proud.”

The Baseball Booster organization then presented each player with a specially designed championship shirt and a DVD copy of the championship game.

“It was very important to the boosters to recognize every player who was a part of the JV and varsity program this season,” said booster president Barb Seeger. “History was made by the group of young men that were in that championship game and our future now lies with the younger players who shared this exciting season.”

Local restaurant owner Dave Panasiti, of Gio’s BBQ, donated a meal for the evening as his way of congratulating the team.

“This is so great for the community and these fine young men,” said Panasiti, “and I am glad to be able to add to the celebration. It is well deserved.”

The American Legion graciously offered their facility to host the event.
