Marshall High School Head Baseball Coach Gerald Rankin was not at Marshall’s baseball game against Lowell High School on Monday and has been reported as missing.

He was last seen on Friday and school officials from Marshall went to his house on Monday, along with police, to seek more information about his whereabouts, according to CIF-San Francisco Section Commissioner Don Collins. The findings of the visit are currently unknown.

Marshall had to forfeit its game against Lowell on Monday.

Update (10:20 p.m.): According to Collins, Rankin was found at home considerably ill.

Update #2 (12:30 a.m.): Several Marshall players showed up to the game on Monday, but they did not have enough to field a team. It is still not known if Rankin will be able to coach in Marshall’s next game against Washington on Thursday.

    They had to forfeit because the coach didn’t come? Or the team didn’t want to play without their coach’s status solidified?

    This doesn’t add up. If he was sick, he couldn’t call to tell his team he wouldn’t be there? He couldn’t call the school? This is fishy.
