Front Porch: Mariners to honor Oso

Mariners to honor Oso: The Seattle Mariners plan a Stilly Valley Community Day for the July 26 game against the Baltimore Orioles at Safeco Field.

Snohomish County sheriff’s detective Terry Haldeman will throw the ceremonial first pitch shortly after 1 p.m.

Haldeman lives near Darrington and was among the first emergency responders on the east side of the March 22 mudslide. He helped set up the first command post, and used vacation time to work an excavator in the debris field to recover people and property.

A moment of silence is planned for the game, and free and discount tickets have been distributed in the Stillaguamish Valley.
