Each year, MLB invites a guest that has demonstrated incredible courage in overcoming a challenge to announce an MLB Draft pick.

This year, the Seattle Mariners recommended they select Tiago to read out the name of the first-round pick for the Seattle Mariners, on stage in front of a live audience, and nationally televised.

Additionally, MLB All-Star Game sponsor Dairy Queen hosted the DQ All-Star Experience for Seattle Children’s patient, Isaac Williams, in partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In addition to attending the All Star-Game, Isaac and his family got to experience on-field batting practice, meet and greets with MLB players and more before the game. 

We are honored and grateful to MLB, Dairy Queen and CMN to have these exciting opportunities for patient families from Seattle Children’s to experience the MLB All-Star Game.
