'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Even though the annual alumni baseball doubleheader was rained out on Saturday, St. Vincent coach Mick Janosko was able to watch his team compete in a couple exhibition games Sunday against Penn State Fayette.

Veteran pitchers Steve Janik (Greensburg Central Catholic) and Max Henry (Latrobe) looked sharp in their outings, and Janosko got to watch many of his 31 freshmen in game action.

Among the freshmen Janosko has high hopes for are outfielder Luke Fox and pitcher/first baseman Greg Martin of Hempfield, first baseman Bobby Thompson of Blairsville and infielder/pitcher Luke Spisak of Yough.

Janosko puts his players through various intrasquad games and exhibition games during the fall.
