He may have opened the season as the ninth hitter in the Old Forge lineup, but that doesn’t mean Chris Talipski is an easy out by any means.
The Blue Devils junior left fielder showed why in a 3-for-3 day at the plate which included the game-winning RBI as Old Forge gave Manager Tony DiMattia his first career victory.
For his effort, Chris has been named The Sunday Dispatch Old Forge Athlete of the Week for the week April 3-9.
Talipski had two singles, a double and a run scored, but it was his seventh-inning sacrifice fly that pushed the game-winning run across the plate in a 5-4 win over Holy Cross.
Posters of Chris can be seen at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Old Forge Athlete of the Week.
