PLAY BALL!  YOU’RE OUT!  YOUR’RE SAFE.  After a year of painful lockdowns, we finally have sports back.  Spring and summer are baseball time.  Popcorn, peanuts, and cracker jacks, along with a hot dog and cold beer or soda for the kids.  It is now here, and available at Funko Field. The Everett Aquasox are finally taking the field with fans.

According to Danny Tetzloff, the Everett Aquasox GM “It has been 617 days for our players.  Their last game was September 2, 2019.  Their first game this year was May 11, 2021.”  If you are lucky enough to own an “Everett Aquasox 2020 Undefeated shirt”, hang onto it.  They are limited editions. And send those young prospects to the sandlot.  Baseball is America’s pastime, and there is no reason for that to change.

Our great minor league teams of which the Everett Aquasox is one, offer these great athletes a chance.  They need all our support.

While still under state guidelines for occupancy rates, you can and should get out of the house, and go to a game safely.  All state guidelines are in effect, including social distancing seating.  But guess what?  All concessions are open for your favorite baseball snacks.

With limited ticket options currently, though hopefully expanding shortly, you should check the Everett Aquasox website often and click on buy tickets to find available games.

Danny Tetzloff says, “we are so excited to be playing ball again, and are grateful for our fans and their support, in filling our stadium to the maximum allowed, we can’t wait for the whole place to be filled.”
