Seattle RBI Team in Regional Tournament

Members of the Seattle Bandidos, the Mariners Junior RBI team, meet manager Eric Wedge before they take off for the Western Regional Tournament in Anaheim.

The Seattle Bandidos, a Mariners sponsored RBI team, is headed to Anaheim next month for the West Regional Tournament of the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program.

The Bandidos are a “Junior” team in the RBI program, meaning the kids are 13-15 years old.

The Bandidos will compete in the Regionals, hosted by the Angels RBI, July 12-15. The winners of the Regional tournament have the chance to advance to the RBI World Series in Minnesota, the annual culmination of the RBI program.

RBI is a partnership between Major League Baseball and Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI League in Seattle is in its 19th year. It’s a partnership between Mariners Care, the team’s non-profit foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, Baseball Tomorrow Fund and Teammates for Kids.

RBI offers inner-city boys and girls the chance to play baseball and softball in a safe, organized program, at no cost to the participant. RBI also includes a life skills training program that emphasizes citizenship and academics.

Good luck, Seattle Bandidos.
