Tales From the Seattle MarinersBook - 2007
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.
