Dustin Ackley gets chance to meet Mariners

Dustin Ackley, who was Seattle's second overall pick in June's draft out of North Carolina, was formally introduced yesterday at Safeco Field, two weeks after he agreed to a five-year major-league contract worth $7.5 million. He was then given an oversized practice jersey with his college number 13 on the back. It made Ackley, 21, look smaller and younger than his listed 6-1 and 184 pounds. Ken Griffey Jr. loved that.
