So we went to Spring Training back in March and had an amazing time! The highlight of our week in AZ was the Mariners last home game of the Spring. It was a Friday evening contest against the Colorado Rockies. And it was the coolest night ever at the ballpark because Tim served as one of the Mariners’ batboys.
Here is pretty comprehensive (long) video with the highlights of Tim’s Mariners debut:
Hopefully Tim can reprise his batboy role again some day in the future accompanied by his brother.
Also, in case it wasn’t clear: The Mariners won!
I was the Mariners batboy for their Spring Training game on 4/4/1991 when the M’s beat the Cubs on the strength of Ken Griffey Jr.’s hitting and Randy Johnson’s pitching. Therefore, the Mariners are officially 2-0 (undefeated) with one of the Cook Boys in the dugout.
