John D'Abruzzo profiles the Mt. Lebanon baseball team.
"After a long day-night doubleheader Saturday at Pullman Park, Pat McCloskey left Butler County feeling pretty encouraged about his Mt. Lebanon baseball team.
The Blue Devils opened their regular-season schedule with two victories, beating Hempfield, 8-6, before slipping past Pine-Richland, 6-4.
"This is the most motivated group I have been around," said McCloskey, who enters his 11th season as Mt. Lebanon's coach. "Our first game was at 10:30 a.m., our second game was at 7:30 p.m. and it was 37 degrees at night. They didn't lose their focus for one second, and that's all you can ask for as a coach.
"That is attributed to our seniors who are really focused this year.""
