A fund-raising matchup between Friday Harbor High School baseball Wolverines past and present raised $3,000 Saturday at Hartman Field.
The money from the second annual alumni game will go to the Friday Harbor Baseball Boosters Club to help cover the cost of maintaining the baseball field.
Friday Harbor baseball fans enjoyed a good game as well as a bake sale and concessions — and they bid for hot auction items, among them autographed Mariners baseballs and jerseys.
With the help of a few alums, the current Wolverine players beat the alumni team 9-2.
Richie Ochoa, Class of 2009, who will play baseball for Washington State University next season, scored the only home run of the game.
Kim Warin, wife of long-time Friday Harbor baseball coach Rich Warin, thanked the community for its support of the event — especially the businesses that donated items for the silent auction and those who volunteered to make the fund-raiser a success.
She particularly thanked the Friday Harbor Masonic Lodge, which donated the food for the concessions.Contact Journal of the San Juans Intern Kelsey Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-378-5696, ext. 16.
