If you’re pining for some baseball and you like helping out a terrific LGBTQ community resource, there’s a great event happening this coming Saturday, March 9th. T-Mobile and Seattle Sports Commission are hosting SEATTLE BASEBALL SHOWCASE, a college baseball tournament at T-Mobile Park™ (what used to be Safeco…) featuring premier teams from the Pac-12, Big 10, WCC and Sun Belt conferences. It’s a three day event but the Saturday game at 7pm is the designated “Pride Night” game featuring the University of Washington Husky Men’s Baseball team take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers.
Pride Night attendees are requested to help support LAMBERT HOUSE, Seattle’s non-profit group that aids LGBTQ youth through a variety of programs. There will be a Lambert House table at the game in the Pride section where you can donate any of the requested items, such as formal/dressy/business attire good condition clothing (needed for job interviews) as well as grocery store gift cards and pizza restaurant gift cards.
