Belle Vernon finished in second place in the inaugural Western Pennsylvania Summer Baseball League. More than 50 teams competed in this new league which was formed as a result of the cancelation of the high school baseball season in March.

Belle Vernon, known this summer as "Leps Nation" received a bye in the opening playoff round then defeated the Highland Summer Rams, Seneca Valley and Ingomar before falling to Norwin in the championship game.

A highlight of the tournament was Garrett Greco's walk-off single that scored Martin Marion in the bottom of the seventh inning, a 3-2 win against Highlands. The team was managed by Belle Vernon High School baseball coach Tony Watson. "(It was) truly an honor to coach these young men," Watson said.

The championship game was played at Boyce Mayview Park in Upper St. Clair. Other sandlots throughout the South Hills and Mon Valley, including the John DiVirgilio Complex in Rostraver, also hosted games.
