The Warriors' Tim Landis tries to slide into homeplate under the tag of the Perk Valley pitcher only to be tagged out in a MBC League playoff game at Perk Valley last Thursday night.
The Upper Perkiomen Youth Legion prep baseball team saw their season come to an end last Thursday night when they were defeated by Perkiomen Valley by a final score of 5-2.
