Remember when NHL fans chanted "1940" at the New York Rangers before Mark Messier led them to a Stanley Cup in the mid-90s?

Well, WPIAL baseball fans could have been chanting "1941" at the Trinity baseball team for years.

Thanks to several e-mails, it's been confirmed the last time Trinity played for a WPIAL baseball championship was 1941 - a span of 67 years. The Hillers went back-to-back in 1940 and 41.

This Tuesday, Trinity can snap the 67-year championship drought if it beats West Allegheny in the Class AAA final at Consol Energy.

Mike who do you think Trinity will start against WEST A? Schrader or Frey? and Why?

They're going with Schrader, which is who I'd go with – barely.

The Moon coach told me West A tees off on the fastball, which is Schrader's best pitch, but the kid has been unhittable this postseason.
