All-State baseball series this weekend

A number of local high school baseball players are heading to Yakima this weekend to take part in the 2014 Washington All-State Baseball Series.

The all-state series brings together the best recently graduated baseball players from around the state from all classifications to make up four different all-star teams: Team Adams, Team Rainier, Team Baker and Team St. Helens. The games will be played at County Stadium in Yakima.

On Saturday, Team Adams plays Team Baker at noon and St. Helens plays Rainier at 3:15 p.m. The losers of those two games face off at 10:25 a.m. on Sunday, with the winners playing at 1:35 p.m.

Team Adams has the most local players on its roster, including Stanwood outfielder Henry Hedeen, Monroe outfielder Hunter Bingham, Granite Falls pitcher and shortstop Riley Larsen, Edmonds-Woodway pitcher and catcher Tate Budnick and Shorewood shortstop Kory Longaker. Adams’s opponent, Baker, has a pair of locals on its roster: Archbishop Murphy pitcher and third baseman Ryan Dorney and Marysville Pilchuck pitcher Cody Anderson.

Team Rainier has four local players on its roster: Arlington pitcher and infielder Ryan Walker, Stanwood pitcher and third baseman Tyler Givens, Snohomish infielder Haakon Lande and Stanwood pitcher Doug Knight.
