Felix to make FanFest appearance on Jan. 29-30
Good news for Mariners faithful looking forward to FanFest later this month. Felix Hernandez, fresh off his American League Cy Young Award season, will be making an appearance both days at the Safeco Field event.
The Mariners’ ace promises to be part of the fun both Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 29-30. Exact times of his appearances haven’t been set, but look for information on that as well as who else will be taking part to come out in the coming days.
If you’ve never been to FanFest, it’s a pretty cool deal with great opportunities to get autographs, run the bases, throw in the bullpen, tour the clubhouse and take part in question and answer sessions with players and coaches.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 6-14. You can purchase tickets or get more information by clicking here.

The Caravan will also hit Moses Lake, Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, Walla Walla and Tri-Cities next week. Over a three-week period from Jan. 10-28, the Caravan will make stops in 21 communities around the Northwest.
Pitcher Doug Fister, infielder Josh Wilson and broadcaster Dave Sims will join the Moose on the second week of stops, while outfielder Michael Saunders, infielder Dustin Ackley and broadcaster Dave Valle take the reins in Week 3 with some help from reliever Brandon League and broadcaster Mike Blowers in the final stops in Bellevue and Lacey on Jan. 28.
