Seton LaSalle’s Dom Popa, whose brother stars for Pitt, committed Monday to also play baseball for the Panthers.

The younger brother is a rising senior who batted .470 for the Rebels, who went 21-3 and won the WPIAL Class 2A title this past spring. The outfielder led his team in hits (31) and runs (23) and was second with 15 stolen bases.

Popa announced his decision on Twitter.

His brother Nico Popa led Pitt last season with a .353 batting average that ranked fifth in the ACC.
