The Ballard High School baseball team has kicked off a fundraiser with a pretty cool goal in mind: if they can sell 1,000 Mariner’s tickets, they’ll get a chance to play on Safeco Field. The tickets they’re selling are $12, and are for the Mariner’s game on April 11. If they reach their goal, BHS will get to play on Safeco Field on Saturday, April 6 against the Kentwood Conquerors. The BHS game is free and open to the public.
BHS Coach Doug Montgomery says his players are pretty excited about it. “They’ll be fielding grounders on the same infield as Dustin Ackley, and slinging fastballs from the same mound as King Felix! They’ll also get their names displayed on the largest video screen in Major League Baseball, which the Mariners are proudly installing as you read!” Montgomery writes on the BHS baseball website. “The annual High School Baseball Classic is not only a great fundraising idea, but an exciting and everlasting experience for any young baseball player, and we’d appreciate your support!”
