Last summer during a Philadelphia Phillies-New York Mets game, it was announced that a Mets pitcher, Josh Edgin, was born in Lewistown.
Edgin is from Huntingdon County - he was born in Lewistown - and played against the Mifflin County league in 2000.
Edgin played for the East Broad Top Babe Ruth League, which opened the 13-year-old District 7 tournament in Gettysburg that year against Mifflin County. Mifflin County won the game, 12-1.
Edgin was starting pitcher.
For the Mifflin County class of 2002, it marked the second time that someone who played against them has gone on to the major league level.
Travis Wood, who has played for the Cinncinati Reds and the Chicago Cubs, played for Southern Arkansas (Bryant) in the 2002 World Series in Connersville, Ind. Wood pitched a win for Southern Arkansas, but against Mifflin County he played in the outfield in a 16-0 loss.
Edgin didn't play against Mifflin County in 2001 as a 14-year-old, and by 2002 East Broad Top had dropped out of Babe Ruth.
