Body found in Slippery Rock Creek identified

NEW CASTLE — Emergency personnel spent 10 hours on Thursday combing the Slippery Rock Creek for a man who apparently fell to his death.

The man has been identified as 49-year-old Jeffrey Alborn of Hickory Township.

Slippery Rock Township Volunteer Fire Chief George Johnson said he entered the stream around 5:15 a.m. from a hillside on the south berm of the Rose Point Bridge, about 144 feet above the stream.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
