BlueJackets Return to League Play on Friday

After a week off to (mostly) beat up on non-league competition, the Kitsap BlueJackets return to West Coast League play on Friday at the Fairgrounds. The Jackets play the expansion Walla Walla Sweets tonight at 6:30 p.m.
The Jackets went unbeaten against the the four teams from the Puget Sound Collegiate League it faced. The only loss during the five-game stretch came from the Seattle Studs.
The Jackets return to league play battling the Bend Elks for first place in the West Division. Bend and Kitsap are tied with four losses each in the loss column. Bend is 10-4; Kitsap is 7-4.
This is Kitsap’s best start in club history. The reason? Offense, baby.
The Jackets were woeful with the bat last year and were second-to-last in just about every offensive category. This year they are third in the league in batting average and second in on-base percentage.
The pitching hasn’t bad either, as it’s fourth in the league in ERA.
Also tonight, the Kitsap Sun is honoring it’s athlete and coaches of the year before the game. For a reminder, Central Kitsap track and field and cross country coach Mark Ward, CK’s distance star Shane Moskowtiz and Kingston’s distance star Ruby Roberts will all be honored.
