Longtime Logan High School assistant baseball coach and pitching coach Jim Willis Jr. was honored at Saturday afternoon’s Wildcats’ baseball game with Wyoming East. Willis, standing next to Logan head coach Roger Gertz, addressed the crowd and received a plaque for his service. He’s retiring from coaching after more than 30 years with the Logan team. Willis began coaching baseball at Logan High School in 1977 and was inducted into the LHS Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003. More than 80 of his former players were on hand to greet him before the game. Willis graduated from LHS in 1971 and was 18-1 on the mound in his prep career. He went on to pitch at Marshall University and had a 15-6 record in four seasons with the Herd. Willis threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Saturday’s game — a strike — to his son Jared, himself a former Logan baseball player who went on to play collegiately at Ohio University.
