||Betts, managed by Don Cummings, of the Warren
Modified Pitch League held on to defeat Bonnell's Steel City of Erie, PA,
managed by Scott Baldi, 8 - 7, to win the 10 Player Major Modified Pitch
State Championship Tournament at the Lincoln Avenue Field Complex in Meadville,
PA on, July 6 - 7, 2002.
Earlier in June, Bonnell's had come out of the loser's bracket to win
their second consecutive 9 Player Major Modified Pitch State Championship
Tournament in Lancaster, PA. They were forced to come of the loser's bracket
to defeat Betts in the first game of the final championship series in
the 10 Player Major State Tournament but Betts held on in the final game
to turn a stunning double play to end the bottom of the seventh inning
and the game for the title.
