Check Out Some of the Best Photos From Last Night’s Altoona Championship Victory

The Altoona Curve won the 2017 Eastern League title last night, and Pirates Prospects had full coverage. As part of that coverage, we had our photographer, David Hague, on hand to get photos from the event, ranging from Mitch Keller’s first pitch, to David getting soaked in the middle of a champagne celebration. Here are some of the best photos from the night. For a full recap of last night’s game, check out Sean McCool’s article. We will have more from this championship later today.

    I love that Tucker was with the club for less than half the year, is injured, and *still* is front-and-center with his teammates in celebration. Kid is a baseball rat.

    • He’s also a true leader. It’s kind of amazing watching from behind the scenes the last few years how he positively impacts every clubhouse, despite being the youngest player on every team.

        I appreciate that, Tim!
