A ferry ride to Kodiak can be an adventure in itself. As it turned out, however, the Homer High School Mariner baseball team’s ride from Homer to Kodiak last week wasn’t that bad.
It was after the team arrived in Kodiak that the weather kicked in.
“Growing up on Kodiak, it was the worst weather I’d ever played in,” said Mariner Head Coach Mark Putney, a former Kodiak resident.
On Friday, temperatures were in the 30s and winds were hitting the island at 30 miles per hour.
