Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Monday, May 20 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Collier With The Curveball
If you happened to be spending your Saturday evening watching your favorite MLB team in downtown Seattle, you must’ve seen Seahawks defensive end L.J. Collier throw out the first pitch at the Mariners game. The first-round draft pick was the first of his draft class to throw out the honorary first pitch at T-Mobile Park on Sunday.
The Mariners were up against the Minnesota Twins playing the third game of the series before they hit the road again to head down to Globe Life Park to take on the Texas Rangers. Collier was pretty excited to not only get to participate in the first pitch but also to get his own custom Mariners jersey.
The No. 29 pick overall seemed to be having a blast out on the diamond prior to the first pitch as he signed autographs for fans and hung out with sixth-round draft pick Demarcus Christmas. Collier mentioned that he used to be a pitcher growing up, so he seemed pretty confident going into it.
The fans in T-Mobile Park cheered on the TCU alumnus as he walked off the field post-pitch. He mentioned to the surrounding personnel, “I’d say that was a good throw.”
Social Post Of The Day
Today’s ‘Social Post of the Day’ comes from Seahawks guard Phil Haynes, as he adds in his commentary on the series finale of popular HBO television series, Game of Thrones.
