We’re all getting prepped to head to Seattle this evening. I spent about 90 minutes at Herb Simpson’s house Tuesday, and I asked him if he was ready for the big trip. “I’ll make myself ready,” he said with a laugh.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple press releases and Web site links relating to Herb’s trip to the Jet City:
• Here’s a link to the Mariners’ press release about African-American Heritage Day Sunday.
• And this is the Everett AquaSox’ press release about their Turn Back the Clock Night, which will honor Herb.
• The Northwest African-American Museum will host a reception for Herb tomorrow night as part of the facility’s ongoing exhibition on black baseball in the Northwest.
• Finally, here’s a link to the Mariners RBI Club, the booster group that’s hosting Herb, Felton and me.
