Mariner Hall Of Fame

In April when I visited Seattle and Safeco Field, I found the Mariners Hall of Fame in the main concourse behind the home plate area. I thought WOW what a great concept and great idea and I was not disappointed. It told the history of the Seattle Mariners, Seattle Pilots and the history of baseball in the Northwest:

The lineup card from the night Ichrio broke George Sisler's single season hit record and jersey from the game (below)

Lou Piniella's 1969 Seattle Pilot Road Uniforn
Mike Hegan's 1969b Seattle Pilot Home Uniform-I love both the home and road uniform
Home Plate from Sicks Stadium-home of the Seattle Pilots and Seattle Rainiers
A bench from Sicks Stadium
George Archer's 1940 Seattle Rainiers jersey
Harold Reynolds 1988 Gold Glove Award

The Mariner Hall of Fame is really cool and I love the fact that it is inside the ballpark. Next time you are at Safeco Field take a look-it is free.


  1. i really need to visit seattle or portland at some point soon!

    1. Seattle is a wonderful place. I have blogged a bunch about my trip over the last months. It is a great place. Of course, I lived there 20 years ago.


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
