Even little kids know why teams head south for spring training.

"It’s cold here!" said 9-year-old Breanna Wagner of Bellevue. But even though the temperature at first pitch was 50 degrees (and it dropped from there), she was more than willing to unzip her jacket to show off her pink Mariners jersey.

She and her brother, 8-year-old Colton, attended a few spring training games at the Mariners’ complex in Arizona last month with their father, Robert. Breanna’s favorite player is Ichiro Suzuki; Colton’s is Kenji Johjima.

"I’ve been a fan of them ever since I first saw them play," Breanna said.

Colton was a bit more precise: "Umm, I’ve liked them for two years now."

Robert smiled.

"They’re big fans," Robert said. "They love the game."
