It seems like almost every picture of the early Eatonville High School basketball teams seems to be of a championship team. These players rocked in the house during the 1920-21 season and came away as Pierce County champions.

1920 was a big year for sports.
• The Boston Red Socks sold Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. Ruth hit 54 home runs and asked for his salary to be doubled to $20,000.

• A young boy approached Shoeless Joe Jackson, one of the eight White Sox players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series, and pleads, “Say it ain’t so, Joe.”
