First week of GSL baseball enlightening

Two pitchers remain from the group that made Greater Spokane League baseball so exciting last year. I did a profile on one, Billy Moon from University, and will follow up with Jake Partridge as the season goes on.

Teams got their first home and home doubleheader out of the way last week and not surprisingly the Titans and Central Valley, last year’s regional qualifiers, are among them. The Bears should be a force, even if junior oriented, if the new pitching staff replaces last year’s sure thing Rusty Shellhorn, and pro signee Trevor Shull. All the other pieces are in place with a dozen players back. Getting past the Rogers Pirates twice, including in extra innings, was huge. U-Hi doubled up Gonzaga Prep convincingly.

Shadle Park figured to be improved, but the Highlanders took a nice step by beating Mt. Spokane 8-2 and 8-1. And East Valley enhanced its 3A post-season prospects by whipping North Central 13-2 and 11-1.

So - after a week -  here’s your chance to guess the best. This was my take  when I previewed the season last week. Mead has yet to play so this week’s games against Rogers and Shadle Park will help sort things out.
