Olympic Stadium

Hoquiam Washington

Former home of the Gray's Harbor Ports
Loggers & Gulls
Attendance was still "up" (i.e. better than 10,000)  just a bit due to the fact that this was an official Mets franchise, as 16,000 came through the gates, but with a final record of 19-52, you can probably guess from that that we won't be pointing out any 20 game winners. The Mets were out by the following season and the Grays Harbor Mets returned to being a co-op team. The 1980 entry into the NWL was much better than the Loggers from the season before. The team featured 3 future Major Leaguers, one of which would become the well known catcher named Mark Parent. Raymond Styons (8 2B, 5 3B, 11 HRs, .283) led the team in power while the best overall hitters were Joseph Scherger (20 2Bs, 5 3Bs, 9 HRs, .339) and Aaron Cain (9 2Bs, 4 3Bs, 6 HRs, .336). Steven Mobberley only had 84 at Bats but was very impressive  batting .357. and Billy Ireland batted .327 which were mostly singles.
