‘Twas the night before FanFest…

I am undeniably jacked for tomorrow. I’m going to attempt to make it as early as possible, but would like to be securely in place for Felix Hernandez’s appearance during the Dugout Dialogue. Will also be trying to get tickets, and am hoping to get a good spot in the bleachers again.

The only thing I really wanted to share here today is something from the Dave Niehaus Memorial page on FaceBook. I have no verification on this from the Mariners organization, and to the best of my knowledge it has not been officially announced, but I thought it was interesting, so I’m posting it here. This is reportedly the uniform patch honoring Dave that is to be used during the 2011 season:

I had expected a small circular patch with his initials on it, like so many other teams have done in the past, but if this is what it is to be, I think it’s pretty slick. Keep in mind, I’m not talking about this like it’s fact – I’ve seen no verification yet, even after posting a link to it on Twitter last night – it was just something I found via blogger and Mariners fan Mike Barer. I’m sure opinions may differ, but I like it, and hope that they do plan to use it, either as a patch, or as some sort of sticker or something.

Happy Friday, everyone! Baseball is just around the corner!

  1. That facebook page actually got it from the team announcing it’s use at the media lunch yesterday, so it is indeed legit.

    Fanfest! This has been such a long time coming, and I am really looking forward to seeing Fifi again. An autograph would be great, but probably a bit unlikely. Oh well.

    I think the patch design looks fine, but I would probably be fine with any design as long as the M’s had something on the uniforms to honor Dave. It is going to be really weird listening to the games this year, and I’m sure it will be tough on Rick Rizzs.

    Will try to say “hi” if I see you. Were you thinking about having a beverage somewhere before or after?

      I’m not much of a drinker these days, I’m afraid – an effort to try to get healthier. Most likely going to plop down by the Dugout Dialogue and not move until later in the day. 😀
