Our very own Ballard Beavers Baseball program is fundraising for the opportunity to play a game of their own at Safeco Field. They have partnered with the Seattle Mariners for this great fundraising opportunity.
The annual fundraiser allows the Beavers to play a game at Safeco Field if they reach their goal in ticket sales to a Mariner’s game. This is the second year that the team are participating in the fundraiser after selling a total of 1500 tickets last year.
As long as the Beavers reach their goal of selling 1,000 tickets they will get the chance to play on the field of their sporting idols. “It is a pretty cool fundraiser and the kids are really excited about it,” said Beavers Baseball coach Doug Montgomery.
The team is selling seats to the Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics game on Friday, April 11th, at 7:10 p.m. Single tickets are selling for $15 and a ticket bundle of 20 can be purchased for $240. The seats are at the 300 level with a guaranteed view of the infield.
If the Beavers are successful in their fundraising campaign they will play the defending 4A State Semi-Finalists the Kentridge Chargers at Safeco Field on Saturday, April 5th at 4 p.m.
“The annual High School Mariners 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,” said Montgomery.
