A couple of Class AAAA baseball teams posted important wins last week, while two of the most talented softball pitchers in the WPIAL continued their dominance.

Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Jameson Taillon, the Pirates top pitching prospect, continues to show why he was a 1st round pick.

The Pirates top pick last year is looking like a player that won’t be spending much time in the minor leagues.
