YOUNGSTOWN OH- Ursuline baseball might just be one of the most decorated baseball programs in the area. They always seem to be in the front of the conversation come tournament time in May. After waiting two years to play, the Irish are striving to live up to that standard in 2021. The Irish are off to 2-3 start to the season. They lost a Saturday double header to open the season against Howland, and St Ed’s. The Irish bounced back with back to back wins over Chaney, and LaBrae, before losing on Saturday to Walsh Jesuit. The Irish move on to travel to West Branch on Tuesday.

He chats with Ron Potesta about his team’s start to the season, what some of the expectations are in the 2021 campaign, and much more. The long overdue return of Irish baseball is upon us, you wil not want to miss a moment. Check out Episode 1 of Coach’s Corner with Matt Weymer.

YOUNGSTOWN, OH – The Ursuline Irish are coming off a heavy senior driven class a year ago as head coach, Matt Weymer looks to lead this year’s squad onto the diamond at the end of the month!

Coach Weymer is looking to “re-stack the deck” after losing six starters from a year ago. One key starter returning is Brady Shannon, who recently committed to the University of Central Florida. Coach Weymer will look to lean on Brady in multiple ways this year, whether its playing multiple positions, multiple spots in the batting order, or for leadership throughout the season. Jonah Kirchner is another returner that Coach Weymer is excited about as he will handle a lot of pitching opportunities this season. Two new faces to look out for on the diamond this year will be middle infielder, Luca Ricchiuti, and the first baseman/pitcher Drew Kirila.

The standard at Ursuline is always high and Coach Matt Weymer always expects the most from his team as he is known to set the bar pretty high. For Ursuline, it is all about the tournament, Coach Weymer scheduled certain teams to push these young men, so they can be ready for anything that might be thrown their way during the OHSAA state baseball tournament at the end of the season!

Every once in a generation there will be a coach that sets such an example of determination, character, dedication, and leadership that helps raise the tide for all ships involved.  In this case, being around Ursuline Skipper Matt Weymer, it’s hard to not have his passion and skillset rub off on his team.

With a solid foundation and a young squad- The Irish are learning and earning at the same clip.  Understanding that tradition takes no season’s off for excuses, Coach Weymer has learned to be patient, and pursuant to what his team can amount to.  Back at the Division 3 Level will present many obstacles and challenges for the green and gold, but the eyes will remain locked on the prize awarded each June.

YSN General Manager Steve Leslie caught up with Coach Weymer for our first of many Ursuline Baseball Coach’s Corners in 2019.



STRUTHERS, OH-  It was a day that was 2 weeks in the making.  The Ursuline Irish Baseball Team exploded for nine runs at Cene Park on Monday in a 9-1 victory over the Crestwood Red Devils.  Ursuline’s first of the season.

Leading the way was the offense, but shining on the hill was Jonah Kirchner who went the distance for the green and gold with a complete game, six strikeout performance while scattering three hits along the way.

Offensively, Junior Colin Balas led the way going 3 for 3, while scoring each time as well.  Jeremy Kreuzweiser also contributed big for the Irish, going 2-4 with a double, three runs and three runs batted in.  Freshman Brady Shannon also impressed with two doubles that were crushed into the gap to put the Devils away for good.

The Irish are back at it today as they play their cross-town rival, Cardinal Mooney in Part 1 of the 2019 Youngstown Holy War.  Action begins at 7pm at Cene Park or streaming LIVE on Your Sports Network.
