SEATTLE MARINERS PARTNER WITH METRO PARKS FOR KIDS PROMOTION

The Seattle Mariners and Metro Parks Tacoma have announced a partnership to promote baseball and softball to thousands of elementary school aged boys and girls in the greater Tacoma area.

Through a new initiative known as On BASE (Baseball and Softball Everywhere), the Mariners will provide team-branded jerseys for 2,400 kids aged 5-12 who participate in the upcoming baseball portion of the Elementary Sports Program, which offers after-school sports at all Tacoma elementary schools.

In addition, the Mariners will contribute financial support to the Jack C. Wilson Active Kids Fund, which offers scholarships for Metro Parks Tacoma registration fees so that all Tacoma youth have access to recreation programs.

“We believe that every child should have the chance to play baseball or softball,” said John Stanton, Seattle Mariners managing partner and chair. “Through On BASE, we will strive to give every girl and boy in the region the opportunity to get outside and to play America’s favorite sports.”

“It’s a great gesture. The Mariners will help keep a lot of dreams alive with this partnership,” said Aaron Pointer, a member of the Metro Parks Board of Park Commissioners and a former Major League ballplayer. “More kids in Tacoma will have the opportunity to be physically active after school and to learn about teamwork.”

The Elementary Sports Program includes T-ball, coach pitch, baseball and softball and is available to K-5 students at Tacoma Public Schools, private schools and those who are home schooled. The program is administered by Metro Parks Tacoma in partnership with Tacoma Public Schools, Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound, and YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties. The program also offers soccer, golf, volleyball, basketball and flag football at various times during the school year. The baseball/fastpitch season runs April through June. Registration closes March 19; details are available on the Metro Parks website.

On BASE

In addition to the partnership with Metro Parks, the Mariners On BASE initiative includes such things as cash grants to support Little League and high school baseball/softball programs in Washington, a series of instruction clinics for youth coaches and players, Mariners Grand Slam skills development camps, Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit & Run competition, the RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner-cities) League partnership with Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club in Seattle and PLAY BALL, a partnership between MLB, USA Baseball and the U.S. Conference of Mayors to promote participation in casual as well as organized baseball activites.

Metro Parks Tacoma is an independent park district that leads efforts to build a healthy, sustainable community. Governed by an elected five-member Board of Park Commissioners, Metro Parks offers a wide range of recreational programs. The district maintains and cares for more than 100 parks and recreational facilities in the Tacoma area, including Point Defiance Park, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, Northwest Trek Wildlife Park and four community centers.

FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE UP FOR GRABS AT CAGESPORT 49

While it sounds like a comic book title –“Superman versus Agent Orange” – the CageSport title fight between Nathan Stolen and Daniel Swain could prove to be one of the hardest-hitting fights in the organization’s 10-year history given the reputation of both athletes.

“Superman” Stolen will face off against “Agent Orange” Swain for the CageSport featherweight belt in the main event of CageSport 49 on Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma.

The five-round title fight will be one of nine bouts on the card.

Tickets are available through the EQC box office and all Ticketmaster outlets. Preliminary bouts start at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Stolen, who is undefeated in two career fights with the promotion, brings a record of 7-2 with five KOs into the championship contest, while Swain, who holds wins over UFC veteran Sam Sicilia and former CageSport champion Drew Brokenshire, is 16-8-1.

“Since my last fight at the EQC I’ve improved greatly overall as a fighter. I’m more experienced now as a professional, having had more fights, wins and losses,” Stolen said. “I’ve got to train with other professionals from all over the world. I’ve seen many different styles that has better prepared me for my future fights.”

Four fighters appearing on the undercard – Terrance McKinney, Quinten Wyland, Chris San Jose and Chase Hooper – will all look to stay undefeated.

The 18-year-old Hooper has been nothing short of spectacular during the early months of his pro career, having won both his previous fights in impressive fashion.

Hooper will square off against Wyatt Gonzalez in a matchup of 156 pounders.

“I know that it’s going to be a tough fight, and there are things that I have to worry about, but I know that he has more to worry about than I do especially on the ground,” Hooper said. “Overall, I’m feeling good about the fight, but I’m definitely not writing this guy off.”

McKinney will also attempt to go a perfect 3-0 when he meets Tyrone Henderson in a 146-pound bout.

Tacoma-based Team SNRG will have a pair of fighters on the card in a debuting Emmanuel Carter, who faces the 2-0 Wyland, and Dominique Smith (1-1). Smith is coming off his first career victory and will meet fellow 171-pounder Eric McConico.

“We’d like to think of CageSport as our show,” said James Pagdilao-Duras, who oversees Team SNRG’s MMA striking and Jiu-Jitsu training, about the promotion being in his team’s hometown. “Of course we need to train hard and continue to be successful to be able do that, but we like the challenge.”

Rounding out the list of undefeated fighters is 3-0 San Jose, who will fight veteran Anthony Zender (7-10) in a 136-pound bout.

GAME WINNER AND SCHOOL RECORD IN PUGET SOUND WIN

Easton Driessen drilled a game-winning 3-pointer with three seconds left as the Puget Sound men’s basketball team gutted out a 101-100 win over George Fox in Memorial Fieldhouse Saturday, Feb. 3.

The Loggers (14-6, 7-5 NWC) trailed, 98-92, with just over one minute left when Stellan Roberts came up with a steal and fast-break layup. The Loggers got another defensive stop, and Roberts was subsequently fouled on the offensive end. He made both free-throws to make it a 98-96 game with 55 seconds left.

The Bruins (6-15, 2-10 NWC) answered with a bucket, but Driessen hit a turn-around jumper in the paint to cut the deficit to 100-98 with 18 seconds left in regulation. Puget Sound intentionally fouled to put the Bruins on the line. George Fox missed the front end of a one-and-one, and Max Basile grabbed the rebound to set up Dressen’s heroics in the Loggers’ final possession. Basile finished with a career-best 15 rebounds.

During the game, Jimmy Wohrer set the Puget Sound single-season record for 3-pointers in a season. He hit his 84th trey of 2017-18 midway through the second half, eclipsing Curtis Medved’s record set during the 2003-04 season. Wohrer will continue to build on his record as the Loggers have four regular-season games remaining.

Wohrer scored a career-high 36 points against the Bruins, surpassing his previous best of 32 points against Wis.-Stout earlier this season. Jeremiah Hobbs scored 15 points for Puget Sound, and Driessen finished with 13.

The Loggers return home to take on Linfield, Friday, Feb. 9, at 8 p.m. The following night, the Loggers host Pacific at 6 p.m. Puget Sound will than visit crosstown rival Pacific Lutheran on Tueday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m.
