The Everett Aquasox, a Single A Short Season affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, play at Everett Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1984 and received a major upgrade in 2001, seating 3,682. We try to go to an Aquasox game at least once a year. This year we joined the Silver Sluggers, the seniors' group at the park. For $19 each we received a T-Shirt and six Wednesday games in the $9 reserved area. The Aquasox were playing the Yakima Bears and won 6-2. The box score was Bears R-4, H-4, E-1 and Aquasox R-6, H-12, E-1. The field lines are RF-325', CF-395', LF-335'. Nice video board in left field. The main scoreboard is manually operated from behind. The floor of the stands is aluminum, which get noisy when the fans start stomping. The speed pitch sign is appropriately sponsored by Speedway car dealership. The video cameraman's location is above the announcing booth where he is somewhat protected by a plastic window. The mascot is Webley the Frog. We left the game a little early as we had had a busy two days of baseball. Tuesday we were at the Mariners game with Felix Hernandez pitching for the Supreme Court. Wednesday we attended a Mariners day game, before coming to see the Aquasox. At an earlier game Rollie Fingers, HOF 1992, threw out the first pitch and signed autographs. Jim had a baseball autographed. Playing for 29 games before going up to Double AA Jackson was the Mariners 1st round draft pick Mike Zunino, catcher, #10. Playing for the whole season drafted by the Mariners in the 7th round was Taylor Ard, 1st base, #35. A big thank you to Tom Backemeyer, Executive Vice President, for getting a game used baseball. Jim was missing a Northwest League baseball from his collection baseballs from leagues we have visited. 2021--Affiliated with Seattle. High A play in the West League.
