Jamie Moyer


RESUME: 25 year MLB pitching career including 11 seasons with the Seattle Mariners. Co-founder (with his wife, Karen) of the Moyer Foundation.

WHY BE AN AMBASSADOR? Special Olympics helps so many people follow their dreams and live their lives to the full potential. I’m proud to be a part of the effort to help make the games in Seattle great.

ADVICE FOR COMPETING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL: The biggest thing is to have fun. When you keep your sport fun you open so many doors. You make friends and you create life stories.

ON THE IMPACT OF THE GAMES IN SEATTLE: I think the games are going to create some huge awareness to what Special Olympics is and what they do. This will be a great platform for Special Olympics to reach out to Seattle and the Northwest.

WHAT SEATTLE SPOT SHOULD PEOPLE VISIT? Enjoy the fine dining available and tour Safeco Field and Century Link Field. They are both great places. And, you’ve got to go to the Space Needle.
