Duquesne High School Drops Baseball Program

Duquesne High School has dropped its baseball program, according to the latest realignment announced Tuesday by the WPIAL. Duquesne lost 11 of 12 games last season in Section 2-A.

Another notable change in the alignment of the baseball sections for the 2007 spring season includes defending WPIAL Class AAA and PIAA champion Pine-Richland moving to Section 1-AAAA, with Butler, Kiski Area, North Allegheny, North Hills, Seneca Valley and Shaler. Peters Township moved from Class AAA to Section 3-AAAA, with Baldwin, Bethel Park, Canon-McMillan, Mt. Lebanon and Upper St. Clair.

  • If you needed proof, baseball shrinks in America as sincere, compassionate billionaires forsake us for new, braindead foreign dollars.

  • Not to say your point isn't valid, but I felt I should point out that the Duquesne High School situation isn't a reflection on baseball.

    Duquesne HS is being closed down, and they've been shedding programs over the last year. Their basketball team features only sophomores, juniors and seniors, because no new students are entering the school, they're being moved to other school districts. Only students who were at Duquesne HS when the closing was announced still attend the school.

    Baseball was probably one of the first to go simply because it requires a larger roster than say, track or basketball.

    Again, I don't dispute your point, but the Duquesne HS situation doesn't really illustrate it.

  • Thanks very much for giving me the whole story on this. I didn't realize the school was being closed down.
