Fun At Bat

The Mariners hosted all participating SPS educators at Safeco Field for a Fun At Bat training with USA Baseball, followed by an evening at the ballpark watching the Mariners play the Houston Astros. The Mariners are the first MLB club to host a training for educators at their ballpark.

Additionally, the Mariners have sponsored the Fun At Bat Program as an after-school baseball and softball program for children who have never had access to bat-and-ball sports. Dimmit Middle School in Bellevue, and Chugach Optional in Anchorage taught Fun At Bat during after-school and English Language Learners Summer Enrichment programs.

In 2019, the Mariners have expanded their Fun At Bat program in partnership with Metro Parks Tacoma's Mini Sports for Preschoolers Programs. All participants ages 3-5 in the "Mini All-Stars" and "Mini Leaguers" programs will be introduced to bat-and-ball skills through the Fun at Bat Curriculum.
