case 'Jesse Baker':
2004 Hall of Fame Inductees BASEBALL
Larson, born on March 19, 1938, made his name as a baseball pitcher,
first coming into the spotlight from 1954-56 at Stadium High School.
He continued to refine his craft, and at the same time earn
notoriety, as a pitcher for Woodworth during the summers of 1956 and
1957. A two-year stint in 1957-58 at Olympic Junior College in
Bremerton led to his jump to professional baseball in the St. Louis
Cardinals organization in 1959. He later coached youth baseball in
the Metropolitan Park District programs for a decade, and served as
an assistant coach at his high school alma mater.
