Seattle Baseball Teams Ring in The New Year With Special Visits to Seattle Children’s

Baseball teams from the University of Washington and Seattle University helped Seattle Children’s patients ring in 2024 with two surprise visits to the hospital in January.

The players spent time with patients in the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center (CBDC) and Seattle Children’s dialysis unit, bringing along new cleats and baseballs for the kids to decorate, which both teams will sport throughout their upcoming seasons.

The athletes also played games with patients and delivered fun swag to parents, caregivers and staff.

Patients and their families say the interactive activities truly made their day a “home run.”











Seattle Children’s is grateful to the University of Washington Athletics Department, Seattle University Athletics Department and the athletes for spending time with our patients and families and making the start of the new year a memorable experience.
