CONGRATULATIONS! West Seattleite Sam Schoenberg excels in Vashon High School’s historic baseball championship win

One more state high-school championship to note: Just across the water, Vashon Island is celebrating its high school‘s first-ever 1A baseball state championship. Islanders are so excited, they welcomed the team with a parade, seen in the video above, shared with WSB by West Seattle resident Joel Schoenberg, whose son Sam Schoenberg (in the photo below) is a VHS player and was a star of the championship game:


Joel recaps: “Sam (former West Seattle Pony and Peewee player), is the leadoff hitter and outfielder for Vashon, went 3 for 3, with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI on a triple and 2 singles (and a steal to boot) in the championship game and was named Player of the Game.” The Vashon Pirates took the title by beating defending state champ Hoquiam 10-6 on Saturday in Yakima.

    So cool.  There are a few West Seattle boys on that team – or “commuters” as they’re known.  The team is a great group of kids.  Glad they were able to achieve this and that Vashon can spontaneously throw them a parade!
