Members of the Penn Hills Senior Softball League held their championships on Sept. 11 at Penn Hills Community Park. The league's teams are organized by the color of their jerseys. In the semifinal round, the Light Blue Team defeated the Gray Team, 14-9, and the Beige Team defeated the Green Team, 13-10. In the championship, the Light Blue Team won over the Beige Team, 19-4. The five-team league began its 35-game season in early May. “It's great to see these guys come out,” said Steve Molitierno, whose father Sal helps to organize and run the league. “They play hard, they tell it like it is, they razz one another and have a good time doing it,” Molitierno said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
