Since 1883, The News Tribune has kept Washingtonians abreast of the state's biggest stories. Now Washington's second largest paper, The News Tribune focuses on the South Puget Sound and Tacoma-Seattle areas. Its reporters file copy on everything from local breaking news to entertainment, and the paper extensively covers sports at the high school, college, and professional levels.
The News Tribune also offers in-depth coverage on Seattle-area-specific subjects, including local military personnel and outdoor recreation, such as fishing and hiking. Besides its print edition, the paper engages readers with a digital version replete with videos, interactive graphics, and a fresh ink smell that emanates from hard drives.

Baseball players can't skimp on their hitting, pitching, and catching skills if they want to dominate the game—a fact that the instructors at Northshore Sports Complex know well. In 1982, Cody Webster earned the title of MVP while playing for the Kirkland Nationals All-Star Team—the first US team to win the Little League World Series. He continued to play throughout high school and college, and went on to coach for Pepsi Baseball. His cohort, Craig Bishop draws on 20 years of coaching experience at high schools and colleges. Together, the duo shares the task of teaching students the fundamentals of the game inside batting and pitching cages.
