Seminole High School on winning the 9A Baseball title 1-0 over Coral Reef High from Dade.

Tim Raines, an alum, is perhaps, the school's all time best baseball player. It was their first title in baseball since 1992.

Great speedy lead off hitter. He in the National League and Rickey Henderson in the American League dominated the bases in the same era.

Very true. He ran track and also played football at Seminole and had several college football offers. Instead he chose MLB having been drafted in the fifth round in his senior year of high school in 1977.

I remember him. Tim Knight (Mainland 1976 or 77) was a younger brother of my classmate Mike Knight. Timmy was the second best baseball player in the area at that time . He signed with the New York Yankee's and got as far as AAA. Time and a family made him hang up the spikes. He passed away last month.

Gosh, sorry to hear that. He was a comparatively young man, younger that the two of us.
