"UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — There was no dogpile after a final out. No wild celebration after a walk-off hit.
The Latrobe Wildcats could only celebrate after an announcement.
Game over. Latrobe champion. Then the Wildcats ran out of their dugout and slid on the wet tarp covering the field.
The PIAA Class 5A championship game Thursday night at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park was called in the top of the sixth inning because of rain. The game was official and Latrobe won, 7-0."
