Every Tuesday during the season, the Williamsport Crosscutters baseball team recognizes a local charity as a part of the Charitable Tuesdays program. On August 3, 2021, the Lycoming County Historical Society was honored to be recognized by the Cutters.

Gabe Sinicropi interviewed Gary Parks

The Society was represented at the event by a number of the staff and board members, including Executive Director Gary Parks, and staff members Eric Ziegler and Kim Taylor, as well as board members Seth Burch, Sue Beidler, Gary Weber, and Lindsey Harner.

A table set up inside the front gate allowed the Museum to display a number of objects from the collection: historic photos of the park and players, bobble heads, a vintage glove and program, Bowman Field stock certificates, and more.

Before the game, Crosscutters PR man Gabe Sinicropi interviewed Gary Parks, on the field. Gary was asked about the Museum's mission. He also comented about some of the interesting objects maintained at the Museum and upcoming events, particularly Bottles & Brews.

Then the game kicked off with the first pitch being thrown to catcher Boomer by board president Gary Weber.

The public recognition was much appreciated by the participating representatives of the Society. The honor did come with a financial reward too - event sponsor, Pennsylvania Skill, presented the Society with a check for $500, a sum that will assist the organization with its important mission.
