The Washington State American Legion Baseball Foundation will hold a Hall of Fame ceremony and banquet on Nov. 3 in Seattle, and two individuals with Snohomish County roots are among the honorees.
Those being inducted include Earl Averill from Snohomish, who played in the major leagues from 1929-41, is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and was later an American Legion commissioner; and Spiro "Spedo" Southas of Everett who was an American Legion coach in the 1950s and '60s, and later worked for the Seattle Mariners as a minor-league executive.
