Washington County Selects Team

WASHINGTON, PA (July 7, 2022) - Washington County, PA, has selected its team for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series. 

Washington’s coach Tyler Rubasky reports that his team is working tirelessly to learn to play team baseball as they prepare for the World Series. The team’s main strength is their pitching. 

“Our pitching depth is very exciting,” Rubasky said. “After working with Coach Lance Marshall at Franklin College, I learned that you want to get 2-0 in any conference/regional tournament. You do that by having good pitching, and good hitting, and I think that we have a group of young men that can do both.”

Rubasky also believes that the growth of the Founders League in Washington County has helped the local youth grow and develop on and off the baseball field. The growth of the Founders League has also led to a team that is more representative of the various geographic regions in Washington County.

Rubasky also believes there are no disadvantages being the home team. 

“Our guys know what it’s like to run out of the dugout, take a ground ball, and see a pitch coming at the plate,” he said. “They also know the sightlines, and sun positioning etc. The overwhelming support from in the area only creates an atmosphere that they want to play in.” 

The team is preparing for the World Series by playing against other high-level teams and are in a few tournaments leading up to the World Series. They also plan on doing their homework and coming up with a plan for each game they play in the World Series.

Washington County will look to build on its 2-2 performance from last year as they face a full international field in this year’s tournament. 

Washington County will play its first game in the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series against London, United Kingdom, at 3:30 PM/ET on Saturday August 6.
