Joey Pusateri will major in film and television when he begins college at DePaul University in Chicago this fall. If Pusateri is searching for a movie idea, all he will have to do is look back on a warm, late-May evening his senior season. It was the night his hit gave his school its first WPIAL championship. With one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th inning, Pusateri — who had only five hits all season — lined a 3-2 pitch to right-center field that scored Ta
It was the era of bell-bottomed pants and 45-cent per gallon gasoline.
It was 1974 — the last time North Hills made the WPIAL baseball finals.

Heading into this year's varsity baseball season, North Hills returned a roster that featured a wealth of experience, including 11 seniors and three juniors. A noticeable majority of that experience was coming back to pitch for the Indians. And for coach Randy Miller, he said the stable of steady arms led him to expect his ball club to squeak out some low-scoring contests. “Going into spring training, hitting was kind of a question mark for us. The one think I knew we had com
