Baseball: Riverside's Dambach brothers still connecting

Written by staff reports on .

During football season, Riverside senior Jason Dambach and his younger brother Austin, a sophomore, set passing and receiving records, respectively. The brothers are continuing to connect on an outdoor athletic field again, but this time it's just up the hill from Memorial Stadium on Dan Oliastro Field.

The pair are hitting a combined .451 for the 12-1 Panthers – Jason is hitting .475 and Austin .411 - as the Panthers are going through Section 5-AA like a hot knife through butter. In the last six games, Riverside has outscored its opponents 68-4.

Already with more PIAA titles than any other school in the state, Riverside would have to be considered a real threat come playoff time. Using three different starters – Vince Loccisano, Adam Jeannette and Mike Boswell – Riverside has not allowed more than three runs in any game and has allowed one or fewer in eight of the 13 games.
