Softball & Baseball Teams Support Jake

Friday, May 24th the team let Jake put his first pitch in the books.

“It was pretty cool to go out with the team and throw it,” he said after delivering a ceremonial strike to his brother, and varsity player, Spencer. “It’s pretty cool to see all the people come out, and to see all the support.”

In a strong show of support, Onekama’s baseball and softball teams rallied around the soon-to-be fifth grader, and dedicated their doubleheaders against Mason County Eastern to him.

“It’s awesome,” Jake’s mother Laura said. “The support is just overwhelming; I mean, we can’t believe the amount of community support and the support from the school.”

In specialized orange “Team Jake” jerseys, the baseball players created a tunnel for Petrosky to trot through, and when he reached the mound, the softball players lining the fence cheered the loudest.
