Having a ball with the Mariner Moose

Players gather around the Mariner Moose at the Boys and Girls Club of Mercer Island’s annual Little League Opening Day on May 7 at the South Mercer Fields. Mercer Island resident and Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto was the guest speaker. There were 50-plus teams, ranging in ages from 3-12, who marched in the parade and were greeted by the Mercer Island High School baseball and fastpitch softball teams. Courtesy of Kym Otte
