Two members of the Pitt-Greensburg baseball team were listed as players to watch in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference preseason poll.

Senior first baseman Tyler Holland (Baldwin) and senior left fielder Chris Common (Penn-Trafford) were named.

Holland was a first-team AMCC all-star last season. He batted .364 with nine home runs and drove in a team-high 47 RBIs. He had 55 hits, scored 37 runs, and added seven doubles and a triple.

Common was named to the second team in 2018. He batted .323 with seven home runs and drove in 39 RBIs. He scored 33 runs and had 10 doubles and three triples.

Pitt-Greensburg had an historic 2018 season where the team set the school record for wins in a season with 26, and advanced to the AMCC championship series against the top seed, La Roche.

Defending AMCC regular season and tournament champion La Roche was picked as the 2019 preseason favorite, while Penn State Behrend was picked to finish in second, followed by Pitt-Greensburg. Holland was a first-team all-conference performer as both a sophomore and junior.

Common owns the career home run record of 19.

Pitt-Greensburg opens the regular-season March 3 with a doubleheader at Bethany College.

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.
