Baseball season is in full swing and Alaska Airlines has launched a contest that has as its prize a trip for two to Seattle (my home base city) in June, tickets to a Seattle Mariners ball game, a 2-night hotel stay and a chance to meet second baseman Robinson Cano at Canoche, a Latin-themed fundraiser scheduled for June 3 that will include a live orchestral performance, dinner, dancing and an auction to benefit Cano’s RC22 foundation.

Sound like fun?

Enter the contest before April 24 here.
