Sojourn on the Yough
19980708aoBatzT.jpg (17545 bytes)   Bob Batz Jr. has been exploring the woods and waters around Pittsburgh since he moved here in 1986 to work for The Pittsburgh Press. He joined the Post-Gazette after it bought the Press in 1993, and has continued writing a variety of feature stories for all sections of the P-G, covering everything from some Steelers fans' trip to Superbowl XXX in Tempe, Ariz., to the death and funeral of Princess Diana in London.

Before moving to Pittsburgh, he worked at The Dayton Daily News, where his father, Bob Sr., still works, also as a features writer.

Bob Jr., knowing since he was a kid that he wanted to follow his dad's footsteps, graduated from the University of Dayton in 1985 with a bachelor's in English. Now 34, he lives in Mt. Lebanon with his cat, Elke.
