Miners to host Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament

June 25, 2011

ROSSITER — The Rossiter Miners' Federation League baseball team will host the second-annual Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament today and Sunday at Shaffer Field in Rossiter.

Four games will be played in the tournament this weekend, with three games featuring the hometown Miners.

All proceeds from food and beverage sales will go toward the Walker's Warriors Relay for Life team. There will also be silent auctions and raffles, with a pink bat autographed by Punxsy native and current Cincinnati Reds prospect Devin Mesoraco being the main piece raffled off.

MESORACO WATCH

June 25, 2011

Former Punxsutawney Area High School catcher Devin Mesoraco has become one of the top producers of doubles in the Triple-A International League, where he plays for the Louisville Bats. This week, he added four doubles to his season total.

Mesoraco's 26 doubles on the season for the Cincinnati Reds' affiliate is good enough for second in the International League, trailing Jim Gallagher of the Charlotte Knights by just one double.

Mesoraco started the week with five consecutive one-hit games, including last Saturday's 1-for-3 performance, during which he doubled and walked.
