1,500 Huskies cheer Mariners to 1-0 win over Reds

Mariners ace Cliff Lee might be on the trading block, but Husky Summer Celebration Night with the Mariners isn’t going anywhere. More than 1,500 Huskies clad in purple and gold gathered at Safeco Field for our annual summer shindig. Harry the Husky was on hand to take pictures with UW Alumni Association members, and UW alumnus Joel McHale tossed out the first pitch.

You might know Joel from E’s The Soup and NBC’s hit comedy Community. He’s a 2000 UW graduate who walked on to the Husky football team and starred on the Seattle sketch comedy smash Almost Live!

Husky Night with the Mariners was open to fans of all ages, and those who purchased tickets through the UWAA saved a few bucks on seats. A portion of each ticket sold went to support student scholarships. Thank you to everyone who took part. We hope you had a blast!

As for the game, Cliff Lee struck out 7 and tossed a complete-game shutout as the Mariners beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0.

If you got your picture taken with Harry the Husky, you can find your photo on Flickr.

    I know this is old, but my daughter from Tacoma (who attends all Husky games), was a direct recipient of one of the scholarships that the tickets supported. Go Husky’s!
