Little League Days at Safeco Field are a Hit

 

051715_014 BVH

The last four Sunday afternoons at Safeco Field have been Little League Days, as nearly 27,000 young players and their families came together to enjoy Mariners Baseball and parade around the field before the game.  This is the 29th year of the current Little League Day program in conjunction with the Mariners.

In addition to the 92 leagues from all corners of the state of Washington, more Little Leaguers than ever from western Oregon and British Columbia (Victoria and Vancouver) converged on the ballpark, sporting the colors of their teams.  The pre-game parades are the big attraction for the kids and their families, as they dream about someday playing on a Major League diamond.  Thanks to the hard work of head groundskeeper Bob Christofferson and the entire grounds crew, as well as many volunteers, these parades run smoothly and the field is ready for play when it’s time for the first pitch.

It was appropriate last Sunday when the Mariners hosted the Tampa Bay Rays that both managers (Lloyd McClendon and first-year Rays’ manager Kevin Cash) played in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.

There are many supporters of Little League Baseball and Softball that deserve to be applauded.  A few of the longest-serving district administrators are:

  • Bob Toigo, District 9 (Eastside area) and Board Member of Little League International
  • Glen Dickason, District 3 (Centralia, Aberdeen, Olympia area)
  • Mike Ray, District 4 (Vancouver, WA area)
  • Gil Nilson, District 8 (North Seattle and north King County)

In addition to the annual “Days” at the home of the Mariners, each year the Little League Boys and Girls (age 11-12) State Champions are introduced at the ballpark and Little League volunteers are treated to special seating.  The Mariners take part in numerous Little League jamborees in the spring around the region.

Little League Baseball and Major League Baseball – a great combination of the present and future of the game.

Peanut Butter Drive at Safeco Field June 5

Ford Focus on Child HungerFans coming to Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays are encouraged to bring unopened jars of peanut butter to Safeco Field to benefit Northwest Harvest.

The Mariners are joining with Ford, the official cars and trucks of the Seattle Mariners, to fight child hunger.

During the summer, many kids lose access to nutritious meals through their school nutrition programs. Food banks have to pick up the slack, and for many, peanut butter is a nutrient dense, kid-friendly option.

The problem is that peanut butter is a relatively expensive item for food banks, like Northwest Harvest, to buy. Food drives can help ensure that fewer kids will go hungry in Washington state this summer.

There will be two collection sites at the ballpark on Friday – the Ford display on the plaza next to the parking garage, and at the Ford vehicle display near Section 143 on the Main Concourse.

Fans can also give cash, and donations are being accepted online at FordFeedsKids.org.

This drive is part of a five-state campaign in the Pacific Northwest by Ford dealers to support their community food banks and to make sure no child goes hungry this summer. Started in 2013, the Ford Focus on Child Hunger has provided more than one million meals and snacks to hungry kids in the Pacific Northwest.

Northwest Harvest is Washington’s only statewide non-profit hunger relief agency. It serves a network of more than 370 food banks, meal programs and services to high-need schools. Through the network, it is able to provide more than two million meals each month.

On July 25, the Mariners and 97.3 KIRO FM will host our annual Fight Hunger Day. It’s another opportunity to support Northwest Harvest and the good work they do every day.
