The West Coast Swing: Seattle, June 28th – July 1st, 2012
Some people mention Seattle and think of the rain, Pike Place Market and Starbucks coffee, but we think of beautiful SafeCo Field and the fearful pitching of the Seattle Mariners. Red Sox Destinations fans got to experience some great baseball in Seattle, with 2 out of 4 games going into extra innings. Ok, so we split the series, but it was some exciting baseball nonetheless. King Felix proved too much for the Sox lineup on Thursday and fanned 13 in the Mariners 1-0 victory. Red Sox fans witnessed Aaron Cook throw an 81-pitch complete game 2-hitter on Friday! The Sox dropped the ball (literally) on Saturday with a play at the plate where Salty couldn’t hang on to the ball in the eleventh. And then in Sunday’s win, Pedey homered for the tying run and we’re (fairly) sure it was the motivation he got from meeting those dedicated Red Sox fans on the road! Dustin signed autographs, took photos and answered some questions from some of Red Sox Nation’s best. In addition to the luncheon, fans enjoyed a VIP tour of SafeCo field, exclusive game tickets behind the Red Sox dugout for 2 games and accommodations at the Seattle Courtyard/Pioneer Square, right in the heart of the Emerald City.
