WENATCHEE, Wash. - The Seattle Mariners will swing by Pybus Market for a free event from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 13 to promote the organization and upcoming 2015 Major League Baseball season.
The Mariners Caravan will set off to visit cities across the Pacific Northwest during January. The caravan will make stops in five WCL cities, including Wenatchee.
Select Mariners players will deliver the DREAM Team message to youth throughout the Wenatchee Valley, while signing autographs.
The Mariners will be represented by Danny Farquhar, Dominic Leone, and James Jones. Farquhar and Leone helped anchor the best bullpen in the majors last season, and Jones was one of the most promising call-ups for a Mariner team that fell just one game shy of a postseason appearance.
Aaron Goldsmith, one of the team’s radio broadcasters, and Mariner Moose, the team’s mascot, will also join the players to provide entertainment for the whole family.
The Wenatchee AppleSox will have a member of the 2015 team in attendance, as local product Kyle Blankenship will join the pros for the afternoon. Blankenship will also sign autographs and a limited number of 2014 AppleSox team-autographed posters also will be available.
Sunny FM KCSY 93.9 (Wenatchee), the AppleSox flagship station, will broadcast live from Pybus Market.
