These are stories, tales, and anecdotes about Major League Baseball in the Pacific Northwest, from its very beginnings as the expansion Seattle Pilots to the Mariners' rise from a perennial last-place team to its division championships of 1995, 1997, and 2001 (when the team won a league record 116 regular-season games). This look at the Mariners, who will be observing their 30th anniversary season in 2007, offers a colorful series of stories and tales from and about the players, managers, coaches, and team personnel who shaped the franchise, like superstars Ichiro Suzuki , Alex Rodriguez, Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Lou Pinella; along with many others, such as beloved play-by-play broadcaster Dave Niehuas, boastful second baseman Bret Boone, and hard-nosed supreme prankster Jay Buhner.

I really enjoyed reading this! It brought back so many memories from '95, '97, and '01, as well as gave me new insight into the early years of the Mariners. Would have been nice if the publishers had worked with the author to update the book with its 2014 re-release, but I'm glad to know that was through no fault of the author.
