Claysburg native Dick Lingenfelter, along with 42 other Blair County natives who played semi-pro baseball were inducted into the National Semi-Pro Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this month at the Blair County Convention Center.
Lingenfelter began his baseball career, playing in The Blair County Twilight League in 1953. When the Twilight League disbanded, local Claysburg teams joined The Greater City League.
He started out as a catcher, but quickly moved into the pitching position. During his 39-year baseball career, not only did he play, but he coached and managed as well.
