2003 Hall of Fame Inductees BASEBALL
Dick Colombini

his friends called him Scooter and that was a tribute to the speed which served him so well in centerfield at Lincoln high and Puget Sound. He started for Bill Mullen at Lincoln as a sophomore, a rarity then, and never batted less than .300 in high school, college or City and Valley league play. George Wise selected him to play on his Sportsman Club All-Stars while he was in high school and he soon joined the Edgewood and Madigan teams of Hal Schimling as a comparative youngster among the best veteran players in the area. He also played with Busch's Drive-In, Sixth Avenue and the Stanley's Shoemen. He was an All-City, All-Cross State and All-State football halfback at Lincoln and earned all-league honors in baseball in both high school and college. Dick played football at Santa Clara before transferring to then CPS where he played for the legendary John Heinrick. A lifelong educator, Colombini was head football coach at North Kitsap high for seven years.
