PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Last Monday, a Pittsburgh Sports League playoff game came to a prompt and dangerous ending in Manchester.
“It was one after the other and everybody got down,” Greg Mitrik, director of the Pittsburgh Sports League, said. “The bullets shot across for a couple seconds. Like I said, the police said there was around 30 that made their way to the field.”
It happened at Manchester Field. Gunmen from a few blocks away fired 30 rounds. No one was injured, but a program young for adults in Pittsburgh suffered serious pain.
Now, they have to worry about which fields are safe for an innocent game of softball.
“We are no longer playing in Manchester,” Mitrik said. “We’re done there. We will cease games there immediately, until further notice, if ever.”
In the meantime, they’re assessing security in the future and hoping to get more police protection.
