Aptos High dedicated its baseball diamond to brothers Paul and Robert Bailey on Tuesday May 8, 2018 before the Mariners’ Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League game against Soquel High.
Aptos Athletic Director Mark Dorfman said the dedication was long overdue for the Bailey family, longtime supporters and donors to Aptos athletics.
“They’ve done so much for Aptos High School,” Dorfman said. “Not just in terms of money, but in terms of support, effort and community love. This is the least we could for them.”
After the dedication, Aptos rallied to beat Soquel, 2-1, by scoring two runs in the sixth inning.
The Mariners also edged San Lorenzo Valley High, 1-0, on Wednesday evening to punch their ticket to the Central Coast Section playoffs.
