Mariners’ ball girls are also Eastlake fastpitch state champs

Eastlake’s “fearsome foursome” of Stephanie Fox, Kaitlyn Bunger, Kelsey Leaverenz and Kimi Pohlman know what it’s like to be on the top of the softball world after winning the 4A state fastpitch title two weeks ago. Now the seniors get to end their high school careers by sharing one more special bond. The four are part of a select group of 11 Seattle Mariner ball girls who shag foul balls at Safeco Field — a job that results in cheers and sometimes jeers. They were selected after the Mariners asked Eastlake head coach George Crowder whether he had any outgoing players who were strong fielders.
