Tacoma Rainiers host Sounders FC Night (Thursday links)

The Sounders are off today, perhaps to not steal attention away from the opening of Seahawks training camp (kidding), but there will be some related activity down south.

The Tacoma Rainiers, the Class AAA affiliate for the Mariners, will be hosting a Sounders FC night. The team will wear Rave green uniforms (pictured above), and Lamar Neagle will throw out the first pitch.

The game starts at 7 p.m. at Cheney Stadium.
