Lions to honor former coach Jim Marshall



Jim Marshall, the first baseball coach in King High history, will be honored in a pregame ceremony Saturday morning at the Lions' ballpark.

Those who played for Marshall during his eight seasons (1961-68) as King's coach are invited to a reunion starting at 11 a.m. The alumni will be introduced on the field 15 minutes prior to the Lions' 1 p.m. game against Bloomingdale. Marshall will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

For information, contact current Lions coach Jim Macaluso -- among the Lions alumni who played for Marshall -- at (813) 758-5642.
