Hundreds of youngsters learn from the Pirates' star and from instructors with ProCamps Worldwide during an event Friday at Boyce Mayview Park.
Pick a player to host a baseball instructional camp while he’s having a MVP-caliber season, and the results are predictable. “We’ve done camps for 14 years, and we can probably count on two hands the ones that sell out in the first year, let alone in the first week and having a waiting list,” said Gregg Darbyshire, chief executive of ProCamps Worldwide. His organization brought Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen to Upper St. Clair Friday for event that can be described only as popular, what with the maximum number of participants and hundreds of observers on hand. McCutchen joined ProCamp coaches in providing about three hours’ worth of instruction for youngsters starting at age 5. Some special treats were in store for the kids…

Upper St. Clair commissioners pave the way for Ardolino's Pizza and Bonefish Grill.
The table is set for two Upper St. Clair restaurants, thanks to township commissioners. On Monday, they gave final approval to an expanded Ardolino’s Pizza and adopted a resolution for the transfer of a liquor license in preparation for a new restaurant to the area, Bonefish Grill. For Rodney and Tammy Ardolino, the approval means they can shift their attention from municipal matters to building a 1,600-foot restaurant to the rear of their existing building off Boyce Road. “We’re really done here,” a visibly relieved Tammy said, half-questioningly, after the commissioners’ vote. She and her husband aren’t quite sure about an opening date at the moment. “We’re making our way there,” Rodney said. “We’re going to get there.” For Bonefish …

Upper St. Clair residents are familiar with the small building that houses Ardolino's Pizza, off Boyce Road. Plans for a new restaurant are one step closer to reality.
A new Ardolino's Pizza is one step closer to reality. On Thursday, the Upper St. Clair planning commission recommended Ardolino's plans to township commissioners for approval. They are expected to vote Monday. Plans call for construction of a new building on property next to the existing restaurant off Boyce Road, which has served local customers for more than two decades. Primary access will be from Maple Lane, although the entrance at Bird Meadows Drive, which leads into Boyce Mayview Park, also will remain open. If you're not familiar with Maple Lane, it now is a gravel road. Restaurant owners Rodney and Tammy Ardolino will have the road paved and provide additional parking. Plans call for the new restaurant to be about 1,600 square …

The new restaurant will be constructed behind the existing building.
Upper St. Clair commissioners unanimously approved the construction of a new Ardolino's Pizza restaurant behind the existing building. The restaurant will sit along Maple Lane, off of Boyce Road, which is currently a private, gravel road. The Ardolinos will pay to have the road paved and upgraded. The new restaurant will have an outdoor dining patio that will seat about 30 people. Commissioners gave approval for service on the patio until 11 p.m. They allow for Stonepepper's Grill to do the same on its outdoor dining patio. The current Ardolino's Pizza restaurant will remain open until construction is fully complete. The Ardolinos will then lease or sell the building to a complimentary business, perhaps a coffee or ice cream shop. The …

The Upper St. Clair couple's non-traditional entry earned honors.
There were pizza makers from New York, from Italy, from all over the world, but it was Tammy Ardolino's non-traditional creation that captured the attention of the judges at the International Pizza Challenge in Las Vegas. Tammy and Rodney Ardolino, owners of Ardolino's Pizza in Upper St. Clair, entered their "Pizza Freako" into the non-traditional category last week and placed second in the region and 10th in the world. Their "Pizza Freako" was inspired by Tammy's Italian grandmother's egg-in-a-piece-of-toast breakfast she'd always serve the family. The Ardolinos used quail eggs and "all kinds of different cheeses" to make the award-winning pie. Tammy said it was sort of similar to a frittata—without the eggs being scrambled. They also …
