Stokes County citizens gather to watch native Dustin Ackley's MLB debut

The Mariners played the Philadelphia Phillies at 10:10 p.m.—a 7:10 start time there on the West Coast. Ackley’s parents, brother and sister flew out to witness firsthand his first MLB game. Many family members who were left behind, as well as friends and other assorted baseball fans, gathered in the SSHS auditorium and accessed the game through a projection system hooked up to wireless Internet broadcasting live from MLB.TV.
