Pitch lanes proposed

Rob Bennett of Avonworth Girls Athletic Association (AGAA) addressed Emsworth Council during the Sept. 12 meeting. He requested permission, which was granted, to remove grass from two strips, approximately 10 x 12, for pitch lanes. He said pitchers were having difficulty practicing on grass.

AGAA and Emsworth Council are negotiating a new long-term lease for the Mayernik Field on Huntington Avenue. Details are expected to be finalized in October.

Additionally, Benett announced that 13 high school teams will be participating in a tournament on Sept. 29 and 30, utilizing Mayernik Field, the ACORD field on Camp Horne Road as well as the field at Ohio Township Park on Nicholson Road.
