Ahead of Spikefest, Congressman Fred Keller(R-PA) voted in support of the Spikes, Williamsport Crosscutters, and other MiLB teams that are facing a shutdown when the MLB looks to save money by cutting various minor league teams.

The bill he voted in support of (H.R. 6020) would let the Government Accounting Offices look into the MLB to evaluate the cost of them eliminating 42 different minor league teams across the country.

“Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District is fortunate to be home to two minor league teams: the State College Spikes and the Williamsport Crosscutters. These franchises have been great community partners, providing our region with affordable entertainment while contributing to our local economies.”
