Peoria, AZ –
The Jets got a unique opportunity today as they got to play against the Seattle Mariners Extended Spring Training camp roster at the Seattle Mariners Spring Training Facility in Peoria, Arizona. It wasn’t about the result today but about the experience of playing at a level that all Jets aspire to one day play at. The Jets would lose the 8-inning game 8-2. Among the players the Jets would face were former major league right handed pitcher Yusmeiro Petit who is on rehab assignment in Peoria. The Jets held their own and weren’t over matched in any facet of the game today as each player competed. In the end, the Mariners physicality and advanced skill sets were the determining factor in the contest.
The Jets now travel back to Vauxhall tomorrow morning in ancticipation of being able to use their own field this weekend for their home opening series against the Edmonton Cardinals beginning with a doubleheader Saturday at 1pm. Keep updated by using Twitter (@VABjets) and here on the website.
