The Mariners have drafted right-handed pitcher Sam Hellinger, who was Metro League MVP as a member of the West Seattle High School baseball team that just finished its season as the state’s #2 3A team. Here’s the news from the Mariners’ website; the tip came from Shirley Tupper (thanks!), who adds:
He and Tim Adams are playing in the All State Baseball Tournament in Yakima, coached by WSHS’s Velko Vitalich, Kerry Tupper & Bryan Tupper. They won their first game and will be playing for the championship tomorrow afternoon at Davis High School in Yakima.
As the Mariners’ online story about the draft notes, Sam Hellinger already has ties to the organization – his dad is the team’s ticket-sales director Bob Hellinger.
