30 minutes east of Triadelphia, West Virginia right across the state line sits Washington, Pennsylvania, a town locals refer to as “Little Washington”. Within the city limits of Washington, lies an abundance of sports history.
From 1915-1923, the Little Presidents high school football team had an incredible record of 63 wins with only 4 losses in the span of 9 years. Clinching the WPIAL Championship in 1923, the Little Presidents put Washington on the map and the gridiron in history books.
Hailing from the great town of Washington, is George Parros, a former player for the NHL Anaheim Ducks where in 2007, Parros and the Ducks clinched the Stanley Cup Title. Continuing his passion for the game, Parros is currently working for the NHL as the Senior Vice President of the Department for Players Safety.
Next to take the hill in Washington are the Washington Wild Things. As a member of the Frontier League East this professional baseball league became an official Partner League of Major League Baseball in 2020. The atmosphere within the Wild Things Park brings crowds with over an attendance of 3,000 with plenty of fun to be had by all. Popcorn, crackerjacks, cotton candy and “The Wild Animal” mascot bring out the fun for all ages. When the diamond isn’t being occupied by pinstripes, Wild Thing Park also hosts many concerts bringing in past guests such as John Melloncamp, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Eli Young Band, and Lonestar.
