Will there be a third beep baseball team in Washington State?

Dino Sanchez at the plate

The Seattle South King Sluggers and Spokane Pride will play this Spring in Vancouver to galvanize interest in forming a Vancouver team.

Our Sluggers have a new home field. The infield offers soft AstroTurf and the dugouts are shaded. Several Metro buses stop just outside the school entrance. Rainier Beach High School is located at 8815 S. Seward Park Ave. and is easy walking distance from the Rainier Beach Lite Rail Station: a straight shot down Henderson.

Volunteers are needed: Sighted guides, base attendants, field attendants, base operator, stat keeper, drivers, sports photographers are needed. You can also help by sharing this information with friends and family. If interested in taking a turn at bat or trying out for the team, contact Kevin Daniel.

Check out Jim Dever's turn at bat on KING 5's Evening Magazine
