Community roundup: MP alum Tingelstad back with AquaSox

Plus, an Everett native leads the U-17 Sounders to a title, the Steelheads will play for a women’s indoor title and more.

Trent Tingelstad is once again a member of the Everett AquaSox.

The Marysville Pilchuck High School graduate was assigned by the Seattle Mariners to Everett, which is Seattle’s High-A affiliate in the Northwest League.

Tingelstad, a 23-year-old outfielder who was selected by the Mariners in the 22nd round of the 2019 draft, joined the Sox on Tuesday after spending the first week of the minor-league season with the Arkansas Travelers of the Double-A Texas League. Tingelstad appeared in four games with Arkansas, batting 3-for-10 with a double and two RBI. He was assigned to Everett after the Travelers activated outfielder Jack Larsen from the 7-day injured list.

Tingelstad began his professional career with Everett in 2019 when the Sox were a Short Season-A team. That season he batted .240 with five home runs and 41 RBI in 67 games.

After the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Tingelstad spent last season with the Modesto Nuts of the Low-A California League, batting .260 with six homers and 53 RBI in 76 contests.

Seattle lost its opening group game against Charlotte FC in penalty kicks after it finished 1-1.

Seattle defeated Mexico’s Tigres 2-0 in the final.
