Steelers basketball team seeking opponents

Tip off between members of the Bethel Park Police Department pose with current and former Pittsburgh Steelers at the department’s 2018 chariety basketball game. The police deparmtent challenges the Steelers to a game of hoops each year.

While it would be hard-pressed to match the offseason drama of its NFL counterpart, the Pittsburgh Steelers Footballers basketball team is gearing up for another season — and looking for games.

The team, consisting of current and former Steelers, plays games at high schools and colleges around western Pennsylvania as a fund-raising venture for the hosting schools. It has been a team tradition for decades.

The team’s season runs from March to May.

For more information on scheduling a game with the team, contact team manager Tom O’Malley at 412-835-5936 or via email at [email protected]

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
