email@example.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. - When it comes to baseball, the jury might still be out on Greencastle-Antrim. But when it comes to the waiting game, the Blue Devils proved they could win a Mid Penn title. First, Greencastle waited for a half-hour before Harrisburg arrived at Barkdoll Field for Friday's game. Then, when the Cougars finally made the scene, the Blue Devils stood around some more at home plate and strolled to a 17-1 season-opening victory, halted by the mercy rule in the fourth inning.
