MVP Big Parsley Delivers The Grand Salami

Saturday, June 21, Ethan—along with dozens of other local and national celebrities—participated in the All-Star Softball Classic for Homeless Youth. The game raised funds for the Untied Way of King County, whose goal is to end youth homelessness in our city.

Ethan “The Big Parsley” Stowell managed to nab the MVP title with a cracking grand slam in the first inning. He went on to get a couple more hits and left the game with a batting average of 1000. The winner of the MVP title was awarded dinner for two at any Ethan Stowell restaurant—not yet sure where Big Parsley intends to dine.

In the end, Ethan's grand salami led Dan Wilson's team to a 22 to 17 victory over Jay Buhner's, and marked the second consecutive win for the squad.
