ARCATA (Sept. 20, 2012) — The North Coast Journal has announced its 2012 Best of Humboldt awards, and the Crabs were honored as the Best Sports Event.
In a town where there's such a great program up the hill at Humboldt State University, the Crabs consider the award quite the compliment.
"It's always nice to win any award, but to have the honor of being voted Best of, in a poll of the local community who we try our best to serve, is especially sweet," said Crabs president Matt Filar. "Thanks to the North Coast Journal, all the fans who voted for the Crabs, and to Ryan Burns, who, in a single column, managed to perfectly describe the spirit that is Humboldt Crabs baseball. Season no. 69 opens on June 1st!"
Filar will be on hand at the Journal's Best Of Humboldt Party Friday night at the historic Eureka Theater. The party features the music of Huckleberry Flint, The Trouble and Missing Link. For more information check out the Journal's Facebook page.
