Pittsburgh (July 21, 2014) – The 5th Year anniversary of Steel City Select Baseball will be celebrated this year with some notable changes to the organization. Progressive adjustments to the baseball activities have already included changing locations to “Sports & Courts” in Warrendale, adjusting the program to create year round opportunities and a formal recruiting program in January that will assist players in college marketing efforts. Additionally, plans for a facility are taking shape and expected to be released in August.
However, today’s expansion to girls fast pitch softball will differentiate and broaden the program right away. “We are excited to add this sport to the Steel City Select brand,” said Matt Diesel, Owner of Steel City Select. “We get to extend our efforts in a sport closely related to baseball, without interrupting our growing baseball brand.” Steel City Select Softball will start this Fall with a 14U and a 12U Team, under the direction of Steven Nelson. “We are thrilled to work out an agreement with Steven who has spent time coaching baseball with Little League Baseball USA, several camps and clinics, played Division II baseball for 4 years at Pitt-Johnstown and then converted to coaching fast pitch softball at Division I Ohio University while receiving his Master’s Degree” added Diesel.
“The Steel City Select program, with its relationships, its facilities today, and soon to be in the future, is a perfect fit for girls fast pitch in the northern Pittsburgh region” added Steven Nelson.
