Monroe boy who survived flesh-eating bacteria has special day at Safeco Field

 

Trey Lauren enjoyed a special day at the ballpark with Willie Bloomquist.

Trey Lauren enjoyed a special day at the ballpark with Willie Bloomquist

Trey Lauren, a 13-year old baseball player from Monroe, got a special treat when Mariners infielder/outfielder Willie Bloomquist invited him, his parents and grandfather to come down on field before Tuesday’s Mariners vs. Astros game.

Lauren spent 23 days at Seattle Children’s Hospital recovering from necrotizing fasciitis, also known as flesh-eating bacteria, which nearly cost him his right leg and his life. The seventh grader is now back home to complete his recovery.

At Bloomquist’s invitation, Trey and his family watched batting practice from the field, then Willie took Trey and his dad into the clubhouse for a tour. Trey emerged with an autographed Bloomquist bat, a Bloomquist jersey and a sparkling white Big League baseball that was soon covered with autographs from Mariners players.

While on field, Trey met Felix Hernandez, John Buck, Corey Hart, Robinson Cano, Mariners legend Jay Buhner, and broadcaster Rick Rizzs.

Trey still has a lot of healing to do before he can go back to school full time. But with therapy, the first baseman and pitcher is hoping to get back out on the baseball field before the season ends.

Felix Supreme Court a Hot Ticket for Tonight

Felix_Supreme_Court

Tickets for tonight’s first home start by pitching ace Felix Hernandez are selling at a pace about five times faster than for a typical Friday night game in April.

At this rate, attendance for the game will likely be over 40,000. The specially priced $25 Main Level seats are expected to sell out by late this afternoon. There are still specially priced $12 View Level seats available, as well as full-price tickets in other locations.

For those of you planning on walk-up tickets, here’s some advice. Get here early because there could be long lines at the ticket windows. Even better is to get your tickets before you arrive via mariners.com/felix for the specially priced Supreme Court tickets, and mariners.com/tickets for regular priced seats. Fans should use the print at home or mobile ticket option for the fastest experience once at the ballpark. But if you do have to buy your ticket in person when you arrive, you have the option of using the self-serve ticket kiosks located around the ballpark.

The first “Supreme Court” was held on August 21, 2012, to celebrate Felix’s perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The “Supreme Court” now marks the first Safeco Field start by Hernandez each season.

The Supreme Court grew out of the “King’s Court,” specially designated sections in left field where yellow-t-shirted fans cheer on Felix by waving K cards and chanting for strike outs. The King’s Court started in 2011.

Where I’m From – Robinson Cano

In this short, Spanish-language documentary, JAY Z’s Life+Times tracks the personal journey of Robinson Cano to the Seattle Mariners from San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, delving into the prevailing youth baseball culture there through the eyes of a native son. Featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews of Cano and his family, JZL+T and Roc Nation Sports presents a candid vignette of a people and a small town to whom baseball is not just a sport, but a way of life.
