Jake Long Memorial baseball tourney kicks off Friday

Jun 06, 2018

The second annual Jake Long Memorial Baseball tournament is expanding.

This year eight teams will be participating in the tournament, which will be played Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 8-10, at Kamiak and Mountlake Terrace high schools.

The tournament was founded in partnership with Kamiak Athletics, the Kamiak Athletic Booster Club, the Northwest Bandits Baseball Club, the Seattle Tides Baseball Club, and Jake Long and Frank Nickerson’s families. Long played for the Northwest Bandits.

The tournament was established to honor the living legacy of Jake Long, a 2015 Kamiak graduate and standout baseball player, and Frank Nickerson, a beloved English teacher and baseball coach at Kamiak High School.

All proceeds from the Jake Long Memorial Baseball tournament go towards funding the Jake Long Memorial Scholarship, and the Frank Nickerson Memorial Scholarship, which are awarded on an annual basis at the Kamiak Senior Awards Night to two deserving senior Kamiak baseball players, so that the scholarship recipients can further their education at the post-secondary level.

Jake Long Memorial T-shirts will be available for purchase for $20 at the tournament and online through June 13 at: http://handlsports.tuosystems.com/stores/jakelongtournament
