Baseball Field Receives New Lights

A baseball field named after a Wahoo crewman lost on her seventh patrol received new light and held its first night game recently.

"For the first time since Logue Field was built in the early 1970s, night games will be played under the lights at the field on the city's west side.

On Thursday, a lighting dedication ceremony was held at the field, which is on county Housing Authority property near the Linn Street development in Newberry.

Logue Field, which is used by the Williamsport Area High School baseball team, adult men leagues and West End Babe Ruth League, was built by local businessman George Logue Sr. in honor of his brother Robert Logue, who was killed while serving on the submarine USS Wahoo during World War II."
