(5-7-17) – This week’s SSN National Baseball Player of the Week is Dimond’s (Alaska) Sean Gardeline (Sr P).

Gardeline threw a five-inning perfect game, including 8 strike outs,  to lead Dimond to a 17-0 win over Bartlett  ( Friday) in a Cook Inlet Conference  game at Mulcahy Stadium.

The CIC baseball season in Alaska is a seven-game, 16-day regular season that began on Monday and is the shortest in Alaska high school sports. Each CIC team will play just one game against each conference member before the league tournament.

The 2017 season was not helped by a cooler than normal spring and a lack of indoor practice facilities due to the collapse of The Dome in Anchorage. Teams had to find any place they could to practice and work out..
