The Towanda (Pa.) High School baseball team was making the second stop of its senior trip to various major league ballparks when Tuesday's Orioles postponement put it behind schedule. There was no doubt in the senior players and statisticians' minds that they would come to the rescheduled game. "We were definitely coming back," statistician Christine Vendello said. Towanda coach Bill Sexton, 53, said because of flooding throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, it was an easy decision to change plans to catch all three games of the Orioles' series against the Philadelphia Phillies instead of traveling to another city.
