“One team, one island, one goal”

baseballoneteamoneislandbannerThe Bainbridge High School baseball team is two wins away from its first state championship.

“Absolutely, it’s been a total community effort,” coach Jayson Gore told Sun sports reporter Terry Mosher. “It has been for (at least) 10 years. Just everybody has helped out. Our kids help out, parents, parents in the past, kids in the past keep coming back. They all want to see the program going in the right direction.”

The team wears custom T-shirts depicting the island with an arrow pointing toward Safeco Field. That’s where the Spartans play today at 1 p.m. against top-ranked Timberline High School.
