  1. Great to see these Eatonville Eagles youth baseball teams. I believe the first Eatonville Eagles team was in 1949. That team won the 14 and under league championship. The manager was Ward Collier who we players loved to play for. He made the game fun. I don’t have any pictures of the team. The only pictures I remember were pinned on the old Jeff Morrow barber shop wall. We did not have nice uniforms like the teams in the two pictures. Our uniforms were red and white jerseys, jeans, and tennis shoes.
