- The Seattle Mariners have some of the best fans in the league, and Sofie was a shining example of that, arranging for some pizza to be delivered to Winker after his ejection on Sunday. But the story didn’t end there. Sofie also rallied fans to pool tips to the delivery driver, Simranjeet, making a friend in the process.
And I got a friend out of it! So wonderful to have talked to you and shared this experience with you today. https://t.co/uKI9LB34Lo— Sofie ️ (@sofieballgame) June 27, 2022
Simranjeet then turned around and paid it forward, making a donation as well
