Tuesdays with Mariners

15 02 2011

Well, just one Tuesday for now. There will be more in the coming weeks for me.

I’ve begun my freelancing for the Associated Press at spring training, and I’ll be with the Seattle Mariners in Peoria for most of the next six weeks with some stops in Scottsdale for the SF Giants, Phoenix for the Oakland A’s and Mesa for the Chicago Cubs.

Two stories today. One on Ken Griffey Jr., who has been welcomed back to the club in the role of special consultant after his abrupt retirement last June.

The second one is about King Felix, as in Felix Hernandez, who is coming off of his AL Cy Young Award 2010 season.

And finally we have photos I took today.
