On the subject of baseball
By John Rymer

I wanted to add to the "Baseball" letter on Monday.
The three coaches that have taken the Sr. League team from Ketchikan
to the Divisional round in Oregon, are all Ketchikan born and
raised. Manager, Brandon Nicholas, Coach Denan Andrews and Coach
Rich McAlpin Jr.. These young coaches have all been to all star
games throughout their baseball careers and now have brought
home a District title and a State title. This is what coaching
in Ketchikan is all about, seeing the players become coaches
and keeping the tradition alive. All the past parents and coaches
that gave all of their time and energy to the Ketchikan program
should be honored by this group, and push for more of our young
players to be all star championship coaches.
To the Sr. League players themselves,
"congratulations" and a job well done!
