Ryan Riordan's feature on the Hopewell baseball team:
"In terms of playoff history, WPIAL Class AAA finalists Hopewell and South Park don't have much in common.
The Vikings have won three WPIAL championships (1979, 2000, 2010), and have reached at least the district semifinals each of the past three seasons.
South Park, meanwhile, will be playing in its first WPIAL championship game since 2002 and is looking for its first district title. They will meet at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Consol Energy Field in North Franklin near Washington."
