Johnstown Wins Host-Area Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (August 6, 2022) - Johnstown, PA, has won PONY Baseball’s Host- Area Zone to qualify for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

Coach Dominic Cannizzaro reports that the team has strength on offense and defense.

“We have a powerful 1-9 lineup, topped with plenty of team speed,” Cannizzaro said. “On the defensive side we have power arms as well as pitchers who will mix it up and hit the spots that are being called. We have a good mix of speed to cover the outfield, and arms to keep teams from getting aggressive on base paths.”

The team’s expectations are to prove to that a small town in Pennsylvania can compete on the world stage.

“Our kids come from small towns where a hard work ethic is key to survival...kids from West Central PA are built differently,” Cannizzaro said.

In the Host-Area tournament, Johnstown went 4-0, outsourcing its opponents 58-13.

The 2022 squad will be the eleventh time that Johnstown has qualified for the World Series. 

Johnstown will play its first game in the 2022 tournament against the winner of game one at 6:00 PM/ET on Saturday, August 13, at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, PA.
