Chief Sealth grad shines for Rangers

By Tim Clinton

Keone Kela didn't have a favorite baseball team when he was growing up, even though he always loved the sport.

"I just liked specific players," said the graduate of Chief Sealth International High School in West Seattle.
Now his favorite players are his Texas Rangers teammates.

"It's great to be in Texas," said the second year relief pitcher. "We have a unique team and a great group of guys."

The Rangers won the American League West title last year and are hoping for more of the same.
"I know our chances are real good," Kela said. "I think we can do the same and then keep pushing forward. I think they're great. The Texas Rangers organization only puts up the best team they can."
Kela, who was born in Los Angeles on April 16, 1993, played a key role in helping the Rangers to last year's title.
