It’s no secret, I love me some Mariners baseball! We don’t have the best record in baseball, but we’re doing okay…feel free to stop the snickering now! Even though our season has been less then stellar, there is still nothing better then an afternoon or evening at the ballpark! This year I’ve made it to four different games, with a couple more being planned!
LOVE Summertime Mariners Baseball!
April 17th ~ Seattle 1 – Detroit Tigers 2
While Alex was home for Spring Break, we got tickets in the King’s Court to root on Felix and the Mariners! While we didn’t win , we did have a GREAT time and made the jumbotron many times! I I tweeted the pic of Alex & I (below) with the #mariners hash tag and our picture and my tweet made the jumbotron! That was pretty cool and yes, I felt pretty special!
April 28th ~ Seattle 6 – Las Angeles Angels 0
For National Volunteer Appreciation Week, I attended the game along with other Eastside Baby Corner volunteers and employees! We had a great time rooting on the Mariners as an organization and celebrating all the amazing volunteers EBC has! Oh, it also helped that we WON!
May 11th ~ Seattle 3 – Oakland Athletics 4
This was a game where Brandi and I took the girls too! A friend’s son Xander’s, elementary school choir was chosen to sing the national anthem before the game! So we went to support him, but also to have some fun and enjoy some evening baseball! We knew Madison would do fine, we weren’t so sure about Emmalee, but to our surprise she did really well too and also had fun!
June 25th ~ Seattle 4 – Pittsburg Pirates 9
I have to brag about these seats…they were six rows behind the Mariners dugout! EBC has a volunteer couple with amazing season tickets and I mentioned that I’d love to go if they ever were unable to make a game! To my excitement, they had tickets to a game a few days later that they were looking for someone to take! I happily bought the tickets from them and invited Amy to come along with me! While the game wasn’t fantastic, the seats were amazing, we could SEE the Mariners up close! It was awesome! I have tickets to go again and sit in the same seats in early August! I cannot wait!
So my record for 2013 for wins isn’t great….but we are just starting the second half of the season….there’s plenty of time to make it a winning season
