Wayback Machine weighs in on Bremerton’s late, great Hal Lee

December 5th, 2012 by cstark

You’ve probably been debating your friends about the Mariners’ Jason Bay signing and Brandon Browner’s four-game suspension, which starts this Sunday for the Seahawks.

Hey, take a break.

Check out the Wayback Machine’s story about Hal Lee, the greatest pre-World War II athlete in Bremerton history. David Eskenazi and Steve Rudman of keep rolling out interesting stories on the greats of yesteryear. Don’t know about you, but I could read this stuff all day. The story also talks about Seattle’s Bob Galler, one of Lee’ s teammates at the University of Washington. Both were first-team All-Americans in the 1930s. Lee was a 6-4 guard. His nickname’s not mentioned in the story, but someone called him “Battleship” and it stuck.
