Triple-A All-Star Tickets On Sale Today

We’ve got some Rainiers news to pass along today.

First and foremost, individual tickets for the Triple-A All-Star Game and Home Run Derby are on sale now.

To get good seats, get your tickets right away – this is going to sell out. I just opened up the Ticketmaster seat map, and there are excellent locations available now.

The two events are bundled together. You get the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 10 and the All-Star Game on Wednesday, July 12.

Here’s the link to buy tickets.

On another note, we have changed the game time for Opening Night on April 11 to 7:05 pm. Early copies of the schedule had it listed at 6:05, but we realized that with all of the pregame ceremonies that didn’t seem right. 7:05 it is – mark your schedules accordingly.

In an important transaction for the Rainiers, on Friday afternoon the Mariners outrighted pitcher Cody Martin to Tacoma. Martin was removed from the 40-man roster earlier last week, cleared waivers, and remains in the Mariners organization.

Martin had a strong 2016 season and will enter spring training camp with a realistic chance to be the Rainiers opening day starting pitcher. Martin went 10-7 with a 3.62 ERA for the Rainiers last year, with an excellent strikeout-to-walk ratio. In 114.1 innings pitched, he struck out 114 batters while walking 33 – and he also allowed only six home runs.

Most importantly to your local blogger, Cody Martin is a radio guy’s best friend: he works quickly and throws strikes. He’s from the Brian “The PCL Dream” Sweeney school of pitching. I’ll be petitioning manager Pat Listach to schedule Martin for every getaway day start in 2017.

We’ll resume the Rainiers pre-spring training positional previews on Thursday.
