The Merchants, an Everett tradition since 1963, have begun recruiting for the 2022 season and are currently accepting applications. As always, we anticipated our roster to fill quickly.
As an affiliate of the National Baseball Congress, we play a regular season schedule of 35-45 games, our home field Funko Field (same field that the Everett AquaSox play) with limited overnight travel. In recent years, the team has traveled to Alaska, California, and Canada in addition to our non-league schedule.
Players must be on an active collegiate baseball roster or former professional player. High School seniors from the class of 2022 who have signed letters of intent are also eligible to play once they have officially graduate. Players should have reliable transportation as well as an enhanced driver license / passport for travel into Canada.
Please note that at the moment we have limited number of host families available.
To be consider for the team you must be committed for the entire season (June – July) and any post season tournaments (early August completion). All player fees and uniform deposits must be paid prior to the first game.
Interested players should contact Coach Mac at email@example.com. Please send detailed information about yourself including college, year, position, links to stats and video.
August 12, 2021 – Everett, WA: The 2021 Everett Merchants season is one we will remember for a long time. It took us on a journey that no one could have predicted as we tried to return to the new “normal.”
This season saw a Merchant squad that was a team in every sense. Veterans and young players alike gave gutsy performances every night. They showed us all that hard work, focus, teamwork, and loyalty will always keep you in the game.
Thank you, Merchant fans, for the incredible way you supported us this year. We felt it every day. You are the best fans, and on behalf of the entire organization, we pledge to do everything we can to ensure you can always be proud to call the Merchants your team. Of course, we are always grateful for our corporate partners, game day staff, coaching staff and our players.
We look forward to seeing all of you back at Funko Field in 2022.
