Ron Black
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
2008 Individual Award Winner


Ron Black played four years of varsity baseball at Centralia High School. His Freshman year in 1962, he went 8-1 as a pitcher for the 20-7 Orphans who made the first Elite Eight appearance by a CHS baseball team. 

His career numbers as a pitcher were 23 wins, 148 innings pitched, and 193 strike outs. While baseball records are sketchy for some years, these numbers are certainly among the very best when it comes to Centralia High School baseball. 

In his final three varsity seasons, he played centerfield when not pitching as the teams had records of 22-6 (1963), 20-2 (1964), and 11-6 (1965). As a pitcher, Black had an ERA of 1.08, 1.26 and 2.61 respectively those three seasons.
