State College Spikes – Pre-Game Photos

Photos of the 2006 State College Spikes prior to their one of their recent games against the Brooklyn Cyclones. &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp


The Spikes' skipper Mark DeJohn owns the top step of the dugout.


Pitching coach Sid Monge and batting coach Steve "Bones" Balboni at work. Both are ex-major leaguers.


Leading hitter Mark Hamilton gets his cuts in.


Yonathan Sivira and Willian Sandoval wait for their turn.


35th rounder Jim Rapoport has been a pleasant surprise.


Charles Carter was honored by being the first-base coach. Does he have a slight resemblance to Mike Matheny?


Kansas' Jared Schweitzer is already known for his hustle.


Few venues offer a view like Keyspan Park.


Rides, beach, ocean and baseball…
