The Pittsburgh Pirates will recognize the Point Park Pioneers for the team's successful 53-11 season, including a NAIA World Series appearance, during an on-field ceremony prior to the Pirates-Tigers game on Sunday, June 24 at 1:35 p.m.

The Pioneers will be congratulated for their NAIA World Series appearance (5th place) and school record-breaking, 53-11 season at approximately 12:15 p.m. on June 24. In another Pioneers connection, Point Park alum Don Kelly will be on hand as a current member of the Detroit Tigers.
PNC Park, the home of the Pirates, is located just a 10-minute walk from Point Park's Downtown Pittsburgh campus. The Pioneers were invited for the recognition by Pirates president Frank Coonelly.
