GREEN TREE, Pa. -- The Point University baseball program received special recognition from Green Tree Borough, the site of the Pioneers' home field of Green Tree Park, with the passing of Resolution #1184 at the Borough Council Meeting on Oct. 1, 2012.

The Point Park baseball team, which finished fifth at the NAIA World Series in May 2012, was recognized as a "role model for success in the community," as described in the resolution signed by Mayor C.F. Hammer and presented by Borough Councilman Arthur Tintori.

Point Park baseball head coach Loren Torres and Director of Athletics Dan Swalga were on hand at the Oct. 1 meeting to accept the recognition, which was the first order of business on the meeting agenda (PDF).

Point Park had an outstanding season in 2012, and it added to the rich history of success for Pioneers baseball. The Pioneers set a school record for wins with a final record of 53-11 and reached the NAIA World Series for the 11th time in school history. Point Park is tied for fourth all-time in the NAIA for World Series berths.

Green Tree Park has been the site of Point Park's home field since the fall of 2010, when the Pioneers became the main tennant of the facility located near Parkway Center Mall. Prior to that, it had been the home field of Duquesne University baseball, but the Dukes cancelled their baseball program in the spring of 2010.

In the spring of 2012, the scoreboard in right field was renovated to designate it as the home field of Point Park Univeristy baseball with school name and athletic logo.

Point Park has a record of 34-8 at Green Tree Park in two seasons playing home games there. The Pioneers look forward to many future years making their home at the facility.
