Rick “The Peanut Man” Tribute

This season, if you buy peanuts from a vendor in the stands at Safeco Field, you’ll notice something a little different on the bags.

The “Rick” patch that peanut vendors wore on their sleeves last season after Rick “The Peanut Man” Kaminski died, has been turned into a sticker and it will be affixed to every bag of peanuts sold by vendors in the stands.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of each bag will be donated by the Mariners concessions partner, Centerplate, to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County. That was one of Rick’s favorite charities.

So when you enjoy some fresh roasted peanuts at Safeco Field, you’ll be paying tribute to “The Peanut Man” and helping kids, too.
