The Yakima Valley Pippins have reached an agreement with Yakima native Bob Wells to serve as the pitching coach on Head Coach Marcus McKimmy’s inaugural staff.

Ken Griffey, Sr. has been a part of more baseball history than almost anyone in the game. From winning two championships with the Big Red Machine to playing Billyball with the Yanks to patrolling the very same outfield with his own son, Ken Griffey Sr. has seen and done it all in professional baseball.
I often hear from friends and family that professional sports are not "important." That if people cared as much about their communities as a whole as they did about whether or not their team won or lost, the world might be a better place.
I say that sports aren't, ultimately, important -- except when they are. If the Mariners win tonight will world peace be achieved? Of course not. Can pro sports be a catalyst to affect social change for the better? Without a doubt.
Yesterday, an old co-worker of mine treated me to a matinee` at Safeco Field. While the Mariners took another one on the chin at the hands of the Texas Rangers (12-4), my son Drew and I had a great time.
When the game ended, we went to the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame to go see the newest display and plaque featuring Ken Griffey, Jr. Junior was inducted into the M's Hall just a couple of weeks ago at another game I attended.
