The Seattle Mariners are expanding Fan Appreciation Night, an annual season-ending event, to the entire month of September with additional specials and ballpark experiences to show the club's appreciation for the support Mariners season ticket holders and fans have given the team this season.
"All season long, Mariners fans have stayed 'true to the blue,' and this is a unique way for us to say thanks. We usually close out each season with Fan Appreciation Night and Kids Appreciation Day. But this year, the celebration will be expanded to the entire month of September," said Kevin Martinez, Seattle Mariners Vice President of Marketing.
Postgame Fireworks Added to Fan Appreciation Night
An already special night just got better with the addition of a third postgame fireworks show on Friday, September 27, Fan Appreciation Night. Along with the usual drawings for great prizes throughout the game, including a 2013 Ford CMAX hybrid car, fans will be treated to a postgame fireworks show after the Mariners meet the Oakland A's.
Kids Eat Free Weekends
During the two weekend series in September, all kids 14 and younger in attendance will receive a special voucher redeemable that day for a free hot dog and Pepsi brand soft drink. The vouchers will be available for the Saturday and Sunday games against Tampa Bay (September 7-8), and Oakland A's (September 28-29).
In addition, all kids are invited to run around the bases after the game on Sunday, September 8, courtesy of KeyBank. Sunday, September 29, is Kids Appreciation Day presented by Ivar's & Kidd Valley, with great prizes just for kids, a pregame parade around the field, an appearance by mascots from around the Northwest and a special Fan Zone with face painters, balloon artists, a Mariners prize wheel and more.
