Local college notebook: St. Vincent baseball team gets some work

| Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

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.
