In Lookout Landing Land...

  • Feast your eyes on the Best of Lookout Landing Twitter for this past week:

In Mariners Land...

  • J.P. Crawford posted on Instagram for the first time since May to show off his brand new Seattle Mariners FOCO straw hat. I don’t have a FOCO, but after going to a Padres game in San Diego this past Spring I purchased a Hemlock straw hat that’s very similar and I have to say — these hats are clutch. Perfect for dad vibes.
  • Jesse Winker is incapable of losing when he has a life like this.
  • Can someone get eyes on what pen Julio is using?
  • Wink makes our list again, this time for swiping a fan’s cell phone this week in Cleveland. My only suggestion would’ve been to take a selfie with the fan. You can’t just give a teenager a heart attack by taking their phone like that without giving them something.
  • The squad threw on different kinds of threads this week to represent their favorite NFL team. The clear winner here? Scott.

In Baseball Land...

  • ALERT: Washington kid makes the big time! Graduate of Lakeside High School and current No. 3 prospect in all of baseball, Corbin Carroll, debuted this week for the Snakies. Woo!
  • What’s better than one Washington kid making the Majors this past week? How about TWO Washington kids making the Majors this week?? Michael Toglia, a Gig Harbor High School Class of 2016 alum hit the field this week for the Colorado Rockies. Way to go!
  • This week the guys from Proud to Be in Baseball traveled to my neck of the woods to celebrate Pride Night at Polar Park with Boston’s Triple-A team, the WooSox. Proud to be in Baseball is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower and advocate for the next generation of LGBTQ people in baseball. A player-driven organization, leading with messages of love and acceptance, Proud to be in Baseball provides resources, educational opportunities, and raises awareness while building the LGBTQ community in America’s pastime. The org supports players from the Little League level to the Pro level.

In Shay Land...

  • Okay, but who else can relate.
