    Trey Lauren, seen here at home on April 11, is recovering from flesh-eating bacteria.

MONROE — A local boy recovering after a bout with flesh-eating bacteria was invited to Safeco Field last week.
Trey Lauren, 13, got to watch the Mariners batting practice on the field. Lauren, a Hidden River Middle School seventh-grader, credits his experience as a baseball player for giving him the perseverance to get through his illness.
Lauren returned home earlier this month after a 23-day stint at Seattle Children's Hospital. He underwent 13 surgeries to get rid of necrotizing fasciitis, commonly called flesh-eating bacteria. Lauren came down with the illness after he cut his right knee and had six stitches in mid-March.
At the Mariners practice, he met Felix Hernandez and Willie Bloomquist. Lauren and his parents, Mark and Randi, were guests of Bloomquist.
He gave Trey one of his jerseys and an autographed bat in the clubhouse. Bloomquist also snagged his teammates to say hello and sign the boy's baseball.
