Since 2006 the Seattle Mariners have, thanks to Bob Hellinger (father to WSHS standout pitcher Sam Hellinger) provided select Seattle area High School baseball teams with the extreme privilege to play a game on the hallowed grounds of Safeco Field vs a non-league opponent.
West Seattle has been lucky enough to do this since the program inception. The promotion relies on each high school team participating to sell a set amount of Mariners game tickets (a certain game is chosen of which the team sells tickets for), and the High School team is allowed to keep a portion of the proceeds as a fundraiser. The team *must* sell their allotment of tickets to keep their opportunity to play at Safeco the following year.
Please see a current team member or coach to purchase tickets to this game. This year (2018) the team is selling tickets to the July 31st game vs the Houston Astros. This is a Tuesday night game at 7:10pm. The Astros are good, and the Mariners also have a good team this year, so be sure to reach out for tickets! They help the team both play at Safeco in 2019, but also fundraise for the team. Thank you!
