WASHINGTON, Pa. — Youngstown is making its fourth consecutive trip to the Dick's Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.
The team’s coach, Dominic Triveri, has managed youth baseball teams for more than 20 years, and his 2021 Youngstown team went 25-0 in the regular season, winning the league championship. The team was runner-up in the Host-Area Tournament.
“This will be my first time attending the PONY World Series,” Triveri said in a news release. “We are excited to represent Youngstown and show everyone the talent these players have coming out of Youngstown.”
After outscoring its opponents 50-4 in the Host-Area Tournament, Triveri said he believes his team is solid on both sides of the ball.
“We have a great hitting lineup with both power and good contact hitters, great pitching staff, and our defense is outstanding,” Triveri said.
Youngstown will play its first game in the PONY League World Series against Washington County, Pa., at 8 p.m. Saturday at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, Pa.
