There will be a 40th Anniversary Championship Celebration before and throughout the game. No giveaways (yet), but relive the memories of the team we miss.
Friday June 21st through Sunday the 23rd against the Orioles is another excellent weekend to get out and get some Mariners swag. Friday fans will receive a Lou Piniella Lou-Au Hawaiian Shirt. Saturday, turn back the clock and receive a Seattle Pilots ball cap. Sunday, fathers will receive a Rick Rizzs talking bottle opener as a Father’s Day gift and youngsters will get some Mariners socks.
If you’re as ecstatic as I am about Edgar making it to the Hall of Fame, you don’t want to miss any of the games they’re giving away commemorative gifts. I may have to leave the comfort of my home in San Diego and catch the series against the Rays from August 9th through 11th.
Promotions will likely be added, so keep checking the Seattle Mariners website throughout the season!
