SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT- Lines wrapped around Lamade Stadium Wednesday morning as fans waited to get tickets to see the team from Pennsylvania play Nevada Wednesday night.
Anticipating a large crowd wanting the see the team from Philadelphia, Little League decided to issue tickets to the grandstands of Lamade Stadium. Those tickets are free, but are only available on a first-come, first-serve basis starting at noon at the stadium’s Will Call window. Fans started lining up more than an hour before to try to get one of those tickets. The line wrapped around the hill overlooking the field.
Fans do not need a ticket to sit on that hill in the outfield of Lamade Stadium, that is also free and open to the public. The tickets are for the actual seating in the stadium grandstands.
A lot of fans are hoping to see the star of the Philly team pitch, Mo’ne Davis. She is expected to take the mound when Pennsylvania and Nevada meet at 7:30 p.m. Davis is getting international attention, including gracing the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
