The Monroe Central baseball team had the opportunity of a lifetime April 11 when they played a game at PNC Park, the home of the Major League Pittsburgh Pirates. The Seminoles, who were supported by an estimated 180 fans at the game, played Pennsylvania powerhouse Shenango High School Wildcats. The Noles lost the game but, according to Coach Ryan Rosnick, “It wasn’t whether we won or lost; it was allowing these players and fans the opportunity to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to see their son or friend play in such an environment.” Taking part in the game were all 16 Seminole players and coaches. “I would like to thank all my support from local businesses and individuals that helped us out in the process,” said Rosnick. “Without them this would not have been possible. This was the greatest experience that I have ever been a part of as a coach and I will remember this forever.” Shown, from left, back row: assistant coach Greg Biedenbach, Eric Ward, Tanner Burkhart, Seth Alleman, Sean Witt, Peter Frontz, Evan Blackstone, Austin Swallow, Devin Jackson, Keith Bable and assistant coach John Rosnick; second row: head coach Ryan Rosnick, Bryan Duffy, Clay Weckbacher, Ethan Groves, Chad Alleman, Cody Ward, Garrett Langsdorf and asst. coach Tim Blue;  front: bat boys Peyton Blue and Zayne Rosnick.
