PRESS RELEASE – The Single-A Everett AquaSox announced their 2012 Promotional Schedule on Monday. The upcoming season, beginning June 20th, is the club’s 18th season as a Seattle Mariners affiliate and 29th season in Everett. Fans can look forward to many unique giveaways and promotions, including seven fireworks shows, two jersey auctions, an appearance by a Seattle SuperSonics Legend and new Military Appreciation Sundays.
Former Seattle SuperSonics legend Gary Payton will appear at the ballpark on Thursday, July 26th where he will throw out the first pitch and sign autographs for 90 minutes.

Each game will include special tributes, exhibits and performances by local military members.
Former AquaSox pitcher, and current Seattle Mariner reliever, Tom Wilhelmsen will be the focus of a bobblehead giveaway on August 3, when the first 1,000 fans at the ballpark will receive a bobblehead depicting Wilhelmsen in his road AquaSox jersey and a bartender apron. 2010 AquaSox pitcher, and University of Washington star, Forrest Snow will also be the focus of a giveaway this season as the AquaSox celebrate Christmas in July on July 27th with Forrest Snow snow globes for the first 1,000 fans.
