Baseball coaches Rawie, Larson square off one last time tonight

Darren Rawie of Mount Rainier and Dave Larson of Highline have both enjoyed successful careers as baseball coaches.

They’ve had some great head-to-head battles when both teams were part of the Seamount League (Mount Rainier joined the SPSL 4A North Division in the fall of 2011).

Both coaches are retiring at the end of this season, which is the 16th for Larson at Highline and the 12th for Rawie at Mount Rainier.

They are scheduled to square off one more time Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at Mosier Field in Burien, weather permitting.

It will be the final game for Mount Rainier (5-14) as Rawie goes for his 199th career victory (against 92 losses). Larson is 228-128 heading into the Tuesday afternoon game against Tyee, which will conclude Seamount play. The Pirates are 11-4 and headed for 3A post-season play.

Larson said he is stepping down because he thinks it’s time for a change. Rawie, also Mount Rainier’s athletic director, had to make a choice when the Highline School District decided its high-school ADs could not coach. He will continue as athletic director.

If you get a chance, get out and support these two mentors, who have done a lot for their respective programs.
