'Christy Mathewson Day' is the story of Factoryville, PA's celebration of Major League baseball pitcher Christy Mathewson. A member of the very first class of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Mathewson was born and raised in the small town nestled in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Capturing the spirit of Factoryville's residents, the town tells it's own history of triumphs and adversities through the framework of the yearly celebration of their favorite son. Trying to always remember the past in their present, Factoryville is very much a nostalgic town yearning to make a mark on theirs and surrounding communities. This story of a small town in Pennsylvania is seen through the eyes of lifelong residents who have a big story to tell. They are not just the backbone of the community, but the heart and soul of small town America.
It's a great day for Factoryville.
