Green River has long been a supporter of collegiate baseball in the South Sound region. Since the program’s beginning in 1968, Gator baseball has been competing in the NW Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC). Green River won the NWAACC Championship in 1975 under the direction of Ron Hopkins and has won seven Western Region titles during that time. Most recently, the school has won the Western Region in 1998, 1994, and 1992. However, in 2009 and 2007 Green River qualified for the NWAACC championship tournament finishing third in both events.
Green River baseball has been successful in advancing the careers both collegiately and professionally in the sport of baseball. Several players have been drafted in the Major League draft, and others have received scholarships to participate in NCAA Division I, II and NAIA programs.
