The Seattle Mariners is a renowned professional baseball team that plays in the Western Division of the Major League Baseball’s American League . The team was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1977. The team was headquartered in Kingdome since its enfranchisement in 1977 until June 1999 when the arena was decided to be demolished. The Seattle Mariners’ new headquarters are currently based in Safeco Field.
For almost two decades, the club languished in the league tables with no noticeable wins. It was for the first time in 1995 that the team registered a remarkable success after winning its first ever division championship. The Mariners clinched the American League’s Western Division series title by defeating the New York Yankees . However, the club failed to capitalize on its maiden win and is among the three MBL teams that have never played in the World Series. The Mariners’ other remarkable feat is their record of most wins in a single season. The Seattle-based club seized a record 116 wins in the 2001 season.
The club’s name “Mariners" originates from Seattle’s prominent marine culture. The club has produced some outstanding players like Alex Rodriguez, Gaylord Perry, Edgar Martinez, Ichiro Suzuki, Jamie Moyer, Jay Buhner, Ken Griffey Jr., and Randy Johnson.
