Making Venezuela Proud – Felix’s 2,000 Strikeouts

Seattle wasn’t the only place that enjoyed watching Felix Hernandez 2,000th strikeout yesterday against Oakland. Venezuelan baseball fans have been watching Felix mature into the Ace that he has become over the last decade and watching #2,000 was just as much fun for them as it was for his fans in Seattle.

Here are a few links (in Spanish) to the Felix Hernandez 2,000 strikeouts coverage in his home country:

Wilmer Reina, a reporter for Diario La Verdad, shared with the Mariners the art for this morning’s edition that featured Felix Hernandez. The awesome graphic breaks down his strikeouts by team, ballpark, players, rankings and more. Click on the photo below to see it in full size.

Mariners Care Golf Tournament to benefit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

For several Mariners players and coaches, Monday’s off day was spent helping raise money for charity. The team hosted the 30th Annual Mariners Care Golf Tournament to benefit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

Since 1986 the tournament has raised approximately $5.3 million for cystic fibrosis research. A silent auction and dinner will follow today’s 18-hole tournament.

Here are some photos of the event:

Here is a fun look at Felix reaching the 2,000 strikeout milestone:

Mariners Honorary Bat Girl

15 Kathleen Sutton 2

Kathleen Sutton takes the field

The Mariners Honorary Bat Girl Kathleen Sutton was nervous about throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before Sunday’s game. But her softball skills kicked in and she threw a strike that nipped the outside corner and landed in catcher Taijuan Walker’s glove.

Sutton was accompanied to the mound by her husband Mike and their five and a half-month old baby boy Spencer.

Sutton was six months pregnant with Spencer when she found out that she has inflammatory breast cancer, which is rare and aggressive. Because she was pregnant, Kathleen was only able to have one round of chemotherapy. About six weeks after her diagnosis, Spencer was born, healthy and with a full head of hair. By then, Sutton had learned that her cancer had spread to her liver and bones. Since then, she has undergone weekly chemo treatments with baby Spencer in tow.

Kathleen is one of 30 Honorary Bat Girls, a program introduced by Major League Baseball in 2009 to raise awareness and support for breast cancer research.

15 Taijuan Walker Auto Bat Ball

Taijuan Walker signed a bat for Kathleen.

During the Mother’s Day game at Safeco Field, Mariners and Oakland A’s players wore pink MLB Pink Ribbonspikes, undershirts, wristbands, and played with special game balls with pink stitching. Several players even used special pink Louisville Slugger bats with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo. Many of the bats will be auctioned exclusively on MLB.com to benefit the fight against breast cancer.

Kathleen hopes her story will help raise awareness of her rare cancer.

“If I had heard about inflammatory breast cancer and its symptoms before, I would have gotten it checked out sooner and caught it before it became Stage 4. Everyone thinks breast cancer and thinks to look for lumps, but there are no lumps with inflammatory breast cancer, and no one has heard of it or knows its symptoms, so they don’t think to look for it.”

15 HBG Kathleen SuttonSutton credits her husband Mike with helping her through this emotional ordeal, calling him “my rock.” Despite the chemo, Sutton has gone back to work baking wedding cakes for the Lake Union Café Custom Bakery. Her husband, her son, and her work are helping Kathleen maintain a positive outlook.

“I’d like to let people know that because you have an incurable disease doesn’t mean you have to stop living. You don’t have to be a ‘Debbie Downer.’ You can still be you and live your life,”
said Sutton.IMG_20110613_210507
