SLIDESHOW: Seattle Mariners players visit local schools

Seattle Mariners Players visited Two Highline School District elementary schools on Tuesday, May 27

The visits were part of an annual event that sends the entire team out to schools in the greater Seattle area to present assemblies for students and to challenge them to become members of the Seattle Mariner Moose D.R.E.A.M. Team.

D.R.E.A.M. stands for Drug-free, Respect, Education, Attitude and Motivation. The assemblies were lively and fast paced with audience participation and interaction with the players.

Coming to Hilltop Elementary School were Robinson Cano, Felix Hernandez, Brad Miller, Stefan Romero, Mike Zunino and Tajuan Walker, while those scheduled for Hazel Valley Elementary School were Kyle Seager, Danny Farquhar, Fernando Rodney, Tom Wilhelmsen, Yoervis Medina and broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith.

Tukwila also drew team members to Cascade View Elementary School.

Scheduled to appear there were Dustin Ackley, Nick Franklin, Justin Smoak, Joe Beimel and Charlie Furbush.
