EXETER — The Wyoming Area baseball team recently held Meet the Warriors at the high school cafeteria following a mass at St. Barbara’s Parish. After the event, the Wyoming Area Diamond Club hosted a dedication ceremony of a newly purchased scoreboard at the Atlas Field in West Pittston.
The scoreboard was dedicated in honor of the late John “Beno” Borzell, a former WA baseball player who lost his life in 2011. Borzell, a 2007 Wyoming Area graduate, was 22 when he died. He graduated from Wilkes University in 2011. His name is now displayed on the scoreboard behind the center field fence. The Borzell family and the baseball team gathered near the pitcher’s mound to power up the scoreboard which was lit up with 17s, Borzell’s uniform number, during the dedication ceremony.
State Rep. Aaron Kaufer was also on hand along with school board members and faculty.
