Riley Tubbs, The Seattle Times' Male High School Star of the Year, is one of three Tahoma High School players expected to participate in the All-State baseball series Saturday and Sunday at Parker Field in Yakima.
Tubbs, an outfielder who has signed with Washington State, is on Team C along with Tahoma pitcher Kirk Wetmore. David Bentrott, a shortstop from the Maple Valley school, was assigned to Team B. Wetmore and Bentrott are Washington recruits who, along with Riley, helped the Bears reach the Class 4A semifinals the past two years.
Auburn shortstop Troy Scott, the MVP of the South Puget Sound League 3A Division, is also a member of Team C.
Nick Hammons, a pitcher/infielder who helped Snohomish reach the 4A title game this spring, was named to Team A along with Jackson pitcher Geoff Brown, who is headed to Washington. Team D is coached by Bothell's Paul Moody and includes two Bothell players — shortstop Cody Atkinson and pitcher Chris Dennis.
The series begins at noon Saturday, when Team A plays Team B. At 3:15, Team C meets Team D. The two losers meet Sunday at 10:25 a.m., and the two winners play Sunday at 1:35 p.m.
