Just got an update from Tom Betterbed. We wrote a story about his daughter, Elizabeth, who graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point with the top score this year.
Tom Betterbed says news of his daughter’s accomplishments spread all the way up north to Safeco Field. Here”s what he wrote in an e-mail today:
“They have invited our family to the M’s/Cubs tomorrow night.
Elizabeth has been tapped to throw out the first pitch.”
The Mariners’ three-game home stand begins Tuesday, and the first pitch is scheduled shortly after 7 p.m.
