Dear Friends of the Mariners:
It is time to switch gears and start thinking about Spring Training. With pitchers and
catchers reporting on February 14, less than a month away, we are focusing our attention
To help in our organizational process, as early as possible we would like to get a list from
the Sports Directors faxed to us on letterhead, laying out who is traveling to Arizona to
cover the Mariners this Spring. Heightened security measures have dictated that we get
detailed specifications of who is coming down, when, and the length of their stay. This
information will also help us assure that credentials will be waiting for your staff when
they arrive in Peoria.
As you may recall from last Spring, MLB requires each news organization's Sport Editor
or Sport Director to sign off on the Terms and Conditions of Credentials before we can
issue a credential to anyone member of your organization. In an effort to simplify
distribution, please sign attached credential language and return it to our office. We hope
that this will allow us to be more effective and organized in having credentials ready for
individuals when they arrive in Peoria.
The Mariners Baseball Information Department will be departing for Peoria Monday,
February 12, before that date all faxes can be sent to (206) 346-4400. After February 12,
they can be faxed directly to our offices in Peoria at (623) 776-4829.
As always, if you have further questions or need additional information please do not
hesitate to contact our office at (206) 346-4000.
