Let the celebration begin

Ridgewood High pitching ace David Doorneweerd and friends celebrate Monday after the phone call informing him of his selection by the Pirates. Doorneweerd and his parents Dennis and Fay met with Pittsburgh Pirates Florida scouting supervisor Paul Tinnell at their home Tuesday. Tinnell answered a few questions and left the Doorneweerds some literature, but a signing bonus was not discussed, Fay Doorneweerd said. "We just listened," Mrs. Doorneweerd said. Doorneweerd, who was the Pirates' second-round pick (68th overall) in Monday's amateur draft, said he will ask for a six-figure signing bonus.
