Seattle Mariners Visit Yakima

Hundreds of Mariners fans turn out tonight to meet some of the teams players.

Fans got the chance to meet with outfielder Casper Wells, pitcher Charlie Furbush, and broadcaster Mike Blowers  as part of the teams caravan tour.

The tour aims to increase excitement for the upcoming season.

Wells says it's important to get involved with fans who live in the eastern part of Washington.

"I don't get a chance to see a lot of them during year being in the Seattle area,," said Wells, "So it's good to come out here and interact with the fans, see a lot of the kids, and just kind of spread the excitement of this upcoming Mariners season."
