Founded in January 2012, Team United consisted of 11 travel baseball players (formally of the Plum Borough Athletic Association in Plum, PA). Team United now consists of two teams at the 12u & 13u age levels. Our teams currently compete in the Three Rivers Baseball League based out of Squirrel Hill, PA, and the Pittsburgh Metro Baseball League. We travel locally to play different teams, organizations, and tournaments in the surrounding areas. United Baseball is a non-profit organization focusing on the development of its players at a fraction of the cost of most AAU teams. United trains in the off-season at Xtra Innings Baseball Inc. in Plum, and our home field is at the North Bessemer Field in Penn Hills.
When Team United was founded, our first order of business was to secure a field for the team. At the time, North Bessemer Field had been sitting vacant for almost a decade. The field and its grounds were in poor condition, damaged and filled with trash. Thanks to Penn Hills Municipal officials, local businesses, volunteers, and nearly $50,000 later the field has been totally remodeled. We have new foul poles and lines, bleachers, players benches, infield mix, parking lot, and a re-furnished back stop. The field dimensions are 258′ to the foul poles, and 240′ to center field. The infield bases can be set from 60-80′ with the pitching mound between 46-54′.
