other Cascade Mountains peak at least twice. Bill also has an
exceptional resume in handball having won numerous tournaments on
the West Coast.
After graduating from Wilson High School in 1960 he played baseball
at Yakima Junior College – where he was teammates with long-time New
York Yankee pitcher Mel Stottlemyre. Bill also coached baseball for
