2001 Champions Picnic

Chad Croft, 12, of Ephrata is ready to play as the 56th annual New Era Tournament opens at Ephrata’s War Memorial Field.

The game apparently was a snoozer, so Laurel Visneski (left), 11, and Hannah Stiger, 10, both of Willow Street, took a nap with a pair of 5-week-old black Labrador puppies at the New Era Tournament in Mount Joy.

Posing with Phillies manager Larry Bowa in the dugout before a game are (from left) Carlos Medina of Manheim Township Black, Ryan Visneski of Strasburg/Willow Street and Jason Smith of Hempfield Black.
