The ARCHIVED 2003 Moon Township.(PA) American Legion Baseball Update.



Just an update, Mark Thompson is returning to take the helm of the Moon Township American Legion program. He replaces Mark Daddi. As you know the team went through a troublesome time last year. Hopefully, what happened to Coach Daddi and the players that survived the season will not happen again. As for updates, unfortunately, I am not sure what Mark will want. I do offer my services to him as I did Coach Daddi. If I do not hear anything, I might retire this page. Hopefully, I will hear from him and continue this website on in to the future.

Moon got outslugged by Robinson Township, 12-7 on Monday night. Starting pitcher Ben Gresco pitched four plus innings. Scorekeeping apparently is in great need on the Legion team. Mark couldn't provide me with any info regarding who had the teams nine hits. Hang in there folks, I'll get him on the right track yet. As he told me this morning via email, he has to get the frieght train righted. Next stop on the Moon Express is Crafton-Ingram-Thornburg (CIT) at home on Wednesday June 4th at Moon Area H.S. Field at 6 PM. By the way, Mark could probably use a scorekeeper. Please apply immediately !!!
