PITTSBURGH EYEING MLS: The USL Pro Pittsburgh Riverhounds yesterday announced that team Majority Owner Tuffy Shallenberger also has "become the majority owner of Highmark Stadium," where the team plays. In Pittsburgh, Nick Veronica notes the franchise "sees the move as another step on its quest to one day join" MLS. Riverhounds CEO & Dir of Youth Development Jason Kutney said, "In terms of making this jump and pushing ourselves in an alignment with the MLS at some point, we needed to make some changes on the ownership side." Kutney said that the team's average attendance in '13 was more than 3,000, and the stadium "can hold a maximum of about 4,000" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 10/30).
