Pen-Mar season opens today

CUMBERLAND — CUMBERLAND — The Pen-Mar WV Baseball League, the longest-running baseball league in the tri-state area, begins its 65th season today with a pair of seven-inning doubleheaders, weather permitting.

The defending regular-season and playoff champion Tri-State Titans will play the West Virginia Powerhouse at Berkeley Springs High School, while the Oakland Oaks take on the Cumberland Orioles at Bel Air Field.

On Sunday, the Powerhouse play the Titans at the Hammersmith Hot Stove Complex at the Cumberland Fairgrounds, and the Orioles play the Oaks at Southern Garrett High in Oakland. All doubleheaders begin at 1 p.m. There is no admission fee to the games.

The Pen-Mar WV League became an all-wood bat league in 2000 and the majority of the league’s players have college baseball playing experience. Over the years, a handful of leagues have come and gone but the Pen-Mar has remained, its roots dating back to 1949.

This year the Titans are managed by Matt Wright and coached by Wes Powell, the Orioles are managed by Jim Taylor, the Oaks managed by Craig Bosley and coached by Tommy Reams, and the Powerhouse, which is moving its franchise from Romney to Berkeley Springs, is managed by Sean Forney.

The league plans to add more teams next year. Players still wishing to find a team to play for this year should contact league president Terry Helbig at 301-533-1050.
