2019 Mariners Caravan

The annual Seattle Mariners Winter Caravan made its pilgrimage to Yakima Monday to one of the biggest crowds they've ever had here.

Representing the players were pitchers Marco Gonzales and Shawn Armstrong along with TV/Radio Broadcaster Dave Sims and, of course, the M's mascot.

The event got underway at 4:30 in the afternoon and began with introductions before a Q & A session where Gonzales, Armstrong and Sims candidly answered queries from valley fans. That was followed by a number of prizes that were raffled off including jerseys, t-shirts, backpacks, wiffle bats/balls, stuffed animals (the Moose, of course!) and one lucky attendee even scored four tickets to a game later this year.

The night concluded with a picture and autograph session. The M's stayed until every last person got a signature, picture, etc.
