Pitt-Greensburg’s Common sets program’s career home-run mark

Penn-Trafford grad Chris Common broke the school record for career home runs at Pitt-Greensburg when he launched his 19th homer — a grand slam over the fence at Bobcat Park — in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday against Mt. Aloysius.

UPG (12-7, 5-1) swept the twin bill by scores of 12-6 and 9-6.

Common, a junior left fielder, broke Bryan Colish’s mark of 18 homers set from 2010-12.

Common was an all-AMCC first-team selection last season when he hit 10 homers and drove in 42 while batting .371. He hit two homers and drove in five runs in a game against Hilbert.

He was the AMCC Newcomer of the Year in 2016.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
