Ex-NIC Player Bay Is A Hit w/M’s

The Seattle Mariners found a spark in their offense this season from somebody who formerly lit up pitchers at North Idaho College and Gonzaga. Jason Bay, who was acquired by the Mariners this offseason, has taken advantage of frequent playing time due to injuries in the Mariners’ outfield. The player from Trail, British Columbia, about a three and one-half hour drive from Coeur d’Alene, is hitting .279 with three home runs and an on base percentage of .375 in 23 games this season with his new club going into Sunday. Bay’s batting average ranks second on the team among players who have played at least 23 games. Third baseman Kyle Seager leads the Mariners with a .292 average/Garrett Cabeza, North Idaho College Sentinel. More here.

Question: Anyone see Bay play as a member of the now-defunct North Idaho College baseball team?
