Background info: Ironmen coach Tim Vickers called Bobick the complete package. Bobick is a team captain and leads the team in batting average (.386) and RBIs (13). A four-year starter, Bobick was an all-section honoree each of the past two seasons. Bobick also played soccer and golf for the Ironmen. Bobick and his teammates plays South Fayette in a WPIAL Class AA first-round playoff game today at Upper St. Clair.

Coach Tim Vickers said: “His intensity and athleticism (makes him special). He’s not like a lot of the kids that are dedicated year-around to baseball because he plays two other sports. But his all-around athleticism makes him a very good overall hitter. He has a good mixture of [contact hitting and power]. And he’s the vocal leader of the team, hands down.”
