Former Washington National and fan favorite, Michael Morse returned to Seattle for Mariners Fan Fest this weekend. We are only a few hours away from Seattle so made a last minute decision to drive over for fan fest when Morse was added to the schedule.
Morse signed autographs for 500 lucky fans on Saturday along with third baseman Kyle Seager and outfielder Michael Saunders. It was great to see the Beast settle back into his old stomping ground. Fans embraced him and welcomed him back with open arms.
One fan gave Morse a hard ticket from the 2005 game when Morse got his first MLB hit. A very nice gesture and Michael and his wife were very appreciative. We also saw a fan in line wearing a Nationals Morse jersey.
The trio were in a Q&A with fans later in the day and Morse was introduced to his signature tune, “Take On Me” by A-ha. It brought a smile to my face.
Seeing Morse’s smile (see photos below) was well worth the trip. We wish Morse the best of luck in Seattle!
