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.
