Seattle Mariners History
The Seattle Mariners were founded in 1977 and played their home games at the Kingdome
from 1977 to 1999, when they moved to their current stadium, Safeco Field. The organization has had some great teams over
the years, including the 2001 team that set the record for the most wins in the regular season with an incredible 116. The
Mariners have yet to win a World Series title or an American League Pennant, but they have captured three division titles
over the course of the relatively short history. They've also had plenty of amazing players, including all-time greats like
Ken Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson, Ichiro Suzuki, Edgar Martinez and many more, giving their fans plenty of thrills in the process.
Seattle Mariners Trivia
Who holds the record for highest slugging percentage in a single season for the Mariners?
answer is, to the surprise of precisely no one, Ken Griffey Jr. In 1994, it really all came together for Griffey, who slugged
at a.674 rate to lead the Mariners that season. But even though Griffey had an unbelievable season that year, he was really
just getting going. In 1995, after breaking his wrist during the regular season, he would return to lead the Mariners to their
most dramatic postseason wins of all-time. From there, Griffey took his game to yet another different level, tallying at least
140 RBIs in each of his next three seasons and leading the American League in homers in three straight seasons as one point
while playing for the Mariners.
