State College American Legion baseball player Ben Finlan is a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.

Finlan helped pitch State College to a second-place finish in the Pennsylvania Open Wood Bat Tournament.

In the semifinals last Sunday, Finlan tossed a two-hit shutout as Post 245 topped Hampden of Mechanicsburg 1-0. Hampden, which had beaten State College earlier in the tournament, had entered the semifinal with a 19-1 record.

In the opening round, Finlan tossed a no-hitter in an 8-0 victory against Exeter. Finlan struck out seven and was a walk and an error from throwing a perfect game.
