EVERETT, Wash. – In honor of their 30th anniversary in the Northwest League, the Everett AquaSox have released a commemorative logo. The 2014 season will mark the Everett franchises’ 20th season as a Seattle Mariners affiliate and 31st season in the Northwest League.

The AquaSox, in partnership with design firm Brandiose, unveiled the logo this week. The new emblem incorporates the AquaSox current color scheme along with a hint of orange in recognition of the team’s previous affiliation with the San Francisco Giants. The franchise was known as the Everett Giants for 11 seasons (1984-1994) before becoming the Everett AquaSox prior to the 1995 season.

“We are extremely proud of the history and tradition that our franchise has built over 30 years,” said AquaSox Executive Vice President Tom Backemeyer. “We are grateful for the support we’ve received from fans of minor league baseball here in Snohomish County and throughout the Puget Sound Region.”

Nearly 30 years ago, on June 19, 1984 at Everett Memorial Stadium, the Everett Giants took the field for the first time led by manager Rocky Bridges. Before an overflow crowd of 3,527 – Bellingham defeated Everett 10-5. Since then, nearly 2.7 million fans have come to Everett.

The Northwest League will begin its 60th season on June 13 as the AquaSox host the Hillsboro Hops for Opening Day at Everett Memorial Stadium. For more information on the 2014 season, please visit aquasox.com or call the AquaSox front office at 425-258-3673.

Minnesota Governor: Vikings’ Peterson should be suspended

FILE - In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. The Vikings benched Peterson for Sunday's game after his attorney said he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of child abuse. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank his son. He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Gov. Mark Dayton called Peterson's actions "a public embarrassment" to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. Vikings Sponsorship suspended & Petersen's court date moved.
