SEATTLE - Mia Alpaugh, a fourth-grader at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary, attended her third Mariners’ FanFest on Saturday, Jan. 25.

Little did she know, this visit was about to become extra special. When Mia glanced at the cover of the official FanFest Guide given out to thousands of fans over the two-day event, she discovered in the upper right hand corner a picture of her doing her best Felix Hernandez imitation.

“Felix is my favorite player,” Mia said. “There was a cutout of Felix and so I decided to pose like him, I guess someone took my picture!”
