Baseball games postponed

A steady dose of rain forced the WPIAL to postpone two championship baseball games scheduled for today.

The Class A final between Carmichaels, attempting to win its fourth title since 2003, and Serra Catholic and the Class AAA contest between Moon Area and Chartiers Valley have been moved to Thursday.

The Carmichaels-Serra Catholic game will be played at 5 p.m. and the Moon-Chartiers Valley game takes place at 7:30 p.m. Both games are at Consol Energy Park in Washington.

The third-place games featuring Trinity and Chartiers-Houston scheduled for today were also postponed. They'll be played Thursday at W&J's Ross Memorial Park, right next to Consol Energy Park. Trinity is scheduled to play Hopewell at 5 p.m. and Chartiers-Houston plays Neshannock at 7.

Mike,
Have you heard anything about teams from the other half of the state for any of the 4 classifications? Are there any Monsters in the East this year that could prevent all 4 title trophies from coming West?

Will McGuffey fill their baseball job soon or do you think they'll wait until school starts again in the Fall?

OR,
In the OR today it states that Frey can't pitch and Schrader can. This is not correct. Frey can pitch and Schrader was removed from the game so he will not be able to return to the mound.

Piaa rules allow a pitcher removed from the game to return to pitching later in the game as long as he is moved to another position on the field in the interim.

I think McGuffey is targeting a couple of Wild Things players as their next head coach. That seems to be a popular move in our area with Ringgold and Canon-Mac both hiring Wild Things to run their programs. Perhaps a guy like Michael Lucas will be interested, unless he replaces Levi at Trinity after the season.

What makes you think that he will replace Levi. I think that is the dumbest thing ever written on this board. Coach Bristor has over 50 wins and has lead the hillers to three straight PIAA state playoffs. At least in my memory that has never been done by any Hiller team. Unless you have inside info that Coach Bristor is leaving. I'm friends with some of the staff and as far as they know he loves it there. Also I believe the kids love playing for him and he loves them. I was at the game last night and I think he really believe he coached a great game. Hopewell was the number 1 ranked team. Great job to the hillers and to Coach Bristor which is a title that he deserves to have in front of his name!!!

I'm not sure if Levi is leaving and he has been great at Trinity. But with success comes offers and I'm sure that high schools and colleges will be fawning over him during the offseason. So I would imagine there is at least a chance he would contemplate taking another job-- especially a college one. I mean locally you have to figure that one of these years W&J will open up as Mountain goes for greener pastures; Waynesburg will open up because their coach stinks; heck even Bethany could open up. So there will be plenty of opportunities for a guy like Bristor to move up in class.

He is legit unlike that fraud who used to coach at C-M.

Let Bristor prove his worth the next few years when his pitching graduates this spring. That will be his measuring stick compared to other area coaches. It doesn't take a lot of coaching knowledge to pencil in either Frey, Schrader, or Bukowski. Heck, most coaches would love to have that hard decision.

Better threesome?:
Frey, Schraeder, and Bukowski

OR

Dittmar, Douglas, and Pierpont

In bristors first year he did not have the three and made it to the state quarterfinals. Plus I think he had to play either back to back or had one day of rest between rounds of states, also the one game was extra innings. I think everyone should say he is a good coach. The sign of a great coach will be doing it on a every year base.

Maybe he helped shape those pitchers. What if he has good pitchers next year? When will it stop? Face it Trinity is a good baseball program, and better than mine here. go wildthings

I got news for you, pitching is thin in the Trinity stable for next year. I can't think of one guy they have that will be able to fill the shoes of the seniors this year. I am not saying that Bristor is not a good coach, his track record speaks for itself. But the true measure will be in the next two years when the pitching is not there. He will need to develop that staff in order to be successful.

Bristor is likely bringing T Mills into town to whip his next year's pitching staff into shape. Pencil Trinity in for a 4th Piaa appearance in a row if that happens.
