Just last year, Britt points out, Mike Zunino was playing for the Everett AquaSox and now he’s playing in Seattle. The store has partnered with the AquaSox organization for a couple of promotions this year. Visitors to the store can submit one ticket each day into a lottery pot to win a four-ticket package to an AquaSox game. Britt’s store also has a first pitch to give away and they’re working out the details to give a local leukemia survivor the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at an upcoming game. Britt is excited about bringing some baseball players to his shop for the local community. “These are the moments I look forward to the most because I dreamed of those moments when I was a kid, but because my family worked so much I never got the chance to meet...
