2013 MBA Champions Awarded
Another successful Mountaineer Baseball Association little league season comes to a close as division champion teams and their families gathered for the annual banquet. Sponsored by Gold, Khourey & Turak and Bryan Electric, Inc., the 2013 MBA banquet hosted ten teams at the Wheeling Park White Palace on the evening of Thursday, August 29.
The celebration kicked off with opening remarks made by MBA Vice President, Jonathan Turak. “Our players and coaches have worked exceptionally hard to make the 2013 MBA season one of the best yet,” Turak commented. Guests enjoyed a buffet style dinner as guest speaker, Ricky Szeligo, offered his reflections of baseball based upon two viewpoints: the player and the coach. Szeligo is the Wheeling Legion Post 1 Head Coach. Szeligo was a member of Post 1 Legion baseball from 2004-2006. He is a 2005 graduate of Wheeling Central High School, where he excelled in high school baseball. As a student player at Wheeling Jesuit University, he was awarded the WVIAC All-Conference Award. In 2009, Szeligo had Tommy John surgery then returned to the field in 2011when WJU made their first WVIAC play-off appearance. In May 2011, Szeligo was drafted in the 1st round of the Frontier League Draft held in Washington, PA by the Windy City Thunderbolts of Chicago, IL. He was assigned as a starting pitcher and had his first starting appearance in Rockford, IL. His coaching experience also includes Wheeling Central JV Assistant and Fall Ball Coach.
To conclude the banquet, the following teams were awarded trophies: Pinto Division, Dallas Pike Athletic Green (15-1) of the American League, Warwood North (14-0) of the National League and Warwood South (14-0) of the Continental League. In the Mustang Division, Elm Grove Civics (10-2) of the East League, Co-Champs Wheeling Island Tigers (12-2) and Bethlehem Bandits (13-1) of the West League and Warwood South (13-1) of the Central League.

Submit Scores; Advisement to All Coaches
The winning team is required to submit their final score within 48 hours. Please use this site to submit scores by clicking on the “Submit a Score” link located at the bottom of all MBA web pages. Coaches primarily take the responsibility of this; however it is not discouraged to have a designated parent or volunteer to take on the task. Please remember, coaches are ultimately responsible to seeing that the scores are being properly submitted. Any scores that are not submitted within 48 hours of a team’s final regular season game WILL NOT be included in determining division champions. Commissioners will use game record information on this site to make that final determination.
Please note that families, friends and players enjoy this feature; therefore, it is important to keep the records updated.
