Kodiak Island welcomed back a baseball legend the only way it knew how to with wind, rain and toe-numbing coldness. The conditions made Mark Putney’s debut as Homer’s head coach a memorable one, but for all the wrong reasons. Behind a pitching gem from Jakob Arnold and a three-hit performance from Austin Frick, Kodiak handed Homer a 17-0 four-inning Southcentral Conference loss Friday at a rain-soaked Baranof Fiel...
