Tyler Burrows of Troop 398, a senior at Truman High School in Federal Way, recently received the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. For his Eagle project, Tyler documented the history of Cheney Stadium and the Tacoma Rainiers. As part of his Learning Through Internship at Truman, Tyler spent four seasons working with the grounds crew at Cheney. Tyler designed a granite monument with an etched photo of Cheney Stadium as it was being built in 1960, with a timeline of the major events throughout the team and stadium’s history. It is placed in front of the “Wall of Fame” in the stadium and will be a part of the new Wall of Fame at the completion of the stadium remodel.
