Marco Malich going into WIAA Hall of Fame

May 2nd, 2013 by cstark

Congrats to Marco Malich, the retired Peninsula High baseball coach, for being voted into the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s Hall of Fame.

Malich is a bit of a legend in the Purdy/Gig Harbor area. He was one of those old-school coaches who could get down on the same level with his players, who respected the heck out of him.

A lot of local softball players remember Malich as a member of those talented Heidelberg slowpitch teams out of Tacoma.

Here’s a link that includes short bios on all of the inductees, including Keith Gilbertson Sr., who had a 61-year teaching and coaching career in Snohomish.

The induction ceremony is noon on May 8 at the Renton Pavilion Event Center. Tickets are $20.
