It was another great "Day At The Show" Sunday, June 28th! For the sixth time since 2006, players from the PSSBL participated in exhibition games at Safeco Field and enjoyed a major league experience for a day. 72 players, representing every one of our nine divisions, took part in an exhilarating experience while raising money for the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Several courageous Make-A-Wish kids, battling life-threatening afflictions, came out to throw ceremonial first pitches. Thousands of dollars were raised for Make-A-Wish, which means several kids will have their wishes granted.
The day kicked off with a home plate ceremony recognizing the 2015 Classes of the PSSBL Hall of Fame as well as a Career Achievement Award recipient. Congratulations to 2015 inductees Brian Bill, Fernando Da Silva, Dan Galaz, Kelly Morton, and Bill Ralston! Special career recognition for Ken Combs!
