Mayor Carlo DeMaria has joined the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and Major League Baseball (MLB) for the 2018 Play Ball Program. This program focuses on the sport of baseball and encourages sustained participation in the sport for years to come. Play Ball will serve as a platform to connect with those who are currently involved in the game, while also providing alternative ways in for those looking to get involved, with a specific focus on youth participation.
The Mayor has engaged City of Everett employees to organize individual and community “Play Ball” events. These events will not only create a renewed sense of enthusiasm for the game, but will also serve as an opportunity to strengthen family and community bonds.
