Honorary Bat Girl Betsy Haffner

A Kennewick woman who is battling Stage IV metastatic breast cancer had quite a day Sunday. Betsy Haffner, her husband Mark and all five of their grown children (four daughters and a son) spent some time in the Mariners dugout pregame with pitcher Taijuan Walker. Then Betsy went out in front of 40,000 fans at Safeco Field and threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Betsy is the Mariners 2016 Honorary Bat Girl. She was nominated by her son Mark, who noted that his mom is facing her future with “unimaginable contentment,” and that she meets every challenge with “dignity and fearlessness and lifts up our entire family in the process.”

Betsy describes the family, including 13 grandchildren, as multi-generational Mariners fans. Although they live in Kennewick, Betsy says she and Mark come over to Safeco Field several times a summer. They have been fans since 1977, when the team was founded, and over the years, the family has bonded over Mariners baseball.

MLB introduced the Honorary Bat Girl program in 2009 to raise additional awareness and support for the annual “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” initiative. In seven years, thousands of unique testimonials have been submitted and millions of fan votes have been cast. Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer is a Major League Baseball initiative supported by its charitable partners, Stand Up To Cancer and Susan G. Komen. The initiative raises awareness about breast cancer, while also raising funds to support breast cancer research.

Mariners ready for PLAY BALL Weekend

043016_025 BVH

Major League Baseball’s inaugural Play Ball Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday. To help kick things off, Nelson Cruz, Nathan Karns and Leonys Martin paid a surprise visit to Little Leaguers in the Seattle area. Players posed for photos, signed autographs and even played catch with some lucky youngsters.

It’s all part of the fun as the Mariners and other MLB teams encourage kids to get out and play baseball. This Sunday, all kids 14 & under will take home a Playground Bat & Ball Set thanks to Aquafina, two perfect items to do just that.

It doesn’t end this weekend. This year, the Mariners have a brand new Kids Club, which includes a drawstring backpack, official newsletter, discount offers and more – all for free. Learn more here.

Also new this year is the Kids Corner at Safeco Field, featuring free timed run, hitting and pitching challenges and photo opportunities for kids 14 and under.

Safeco Field Peanut Butter Drive is this Saturday

Ford Peanut Butter DriveNorthwest Ford Stores and the Seattle Mariners are collecting peanut butter at Safeco Field on Saturday, May 14, to benefit Peanut Butter Drive Northwest Harvest. The drive is part of the Ford Focus on Child Hunger campaign.

Fans are asked to bring unopened jars of peanut butter to the game against the Los Angeles Angels (6:10 p.m. start) and drop them off at the Left Field Gate or at the Ford display near Section 143 on the Main Concourse. Skippy Peanut Butter has pledged to match all donations. Fans can also give cash at the collection sites, and donations can be made online at FordFeedsKids.org.

 

The Safeco Field peanut butter drive is part of a five state campaign in the Pacific Northwest by Ford dealers to support community food banks and make sure no child goes hungry this summer. Since 2013, the Ford Focus on Child Hunger campaign has provided more than two million meals and snacks to kids across the region.
Many food banks experience an increased demand for nutritious, kid-friendly food during summer months when many children lose access to school nutrition programs. It is estimated nearly 24% of children are unsure how their next meal will be provided and when school is out during the summer months, local food banks carry a larger responsibility to feed kids. Peanut butter is an important protein staple to feed kids during these summer months, but is difficult to acquire in adequate quantities.
