The Joseph F. Coyne III Memorial Softball Tournament was recently held at the Exeter Little League.

This year’s beneficiary of the fifth annual double elimination tournament was Wyoming Area eighth-grader Eric Spiecher who has been bravely battling brain cancer.

Mascots from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins were on hand for the festivities.

The Coyne Tournament raised $5,125 that was donated to the Spiecher family.
