Pirates to caravan to Freeport

| Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011

Freeport is often booming with baseball in the summer during the Freeport International, but the community could be abuzz with baseball this winter, thanks to the Pirates.

The Pirates Winter Caravan plans to make a stop Jan. 26 at Freeport Junior High School. The event is set to begin at 9 a.m. and will last about an hour.

Center fielder Andrew McCutchen and pitchers Evan Meek and Ross Ohlendorf will be the player representatives, joining announcers Bob Walk and John Wehner.

The program is slated to include videos of player introductions, highlights and bloopers. Students will get to play the team's version of "Minute To Win It."

The Pirates will make 36 stops in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia with three groups of players and personnel. For more information about the Freeport stop, contact Don Dell at 724-295-9020.

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.
