Potter-McKean clubbed eight home runs and averaged over 10 runs per game in its march to the 1951 Pennsylvania championship. In the quarterfinals, P-M batters homered three times to account for eight runs in a 9-2 win over Williamsport Newberry. Bert Tucker hit a first inning grand slam, and Joe Marzo (solo shot) and Fred Howell (three-run homer) added round-trippers in the fourth.

In the semifinals, Potter-McKean scored its first nine runs on only three hits -- Trey Shields' grand slam in the second, Tucker's solo homer in the third, and Marzo's two-run blow in the fourth. Tucker's blast snapped a 6-6 tie and gave P-M a lead it would never relinquish. In the other semifinal, Newville routed Lewistown 19-0. Newville pitchers Harry Lay and Ed Griffie combined on a two-hitter, while Newville connected for 15 hits and capitalized on nine Newville errors.

The tables were turned on Newville in the title game, however. Potter-McKean raced to a 12-0 lead before Newville was able to generate three runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth. Marzo again homered for P-M (a two-run blow in the first inning), as did Howell (three-run homer in the second).
