Larry Andersen, Richie Zisk, and Joe Simpson made sure that everywhere bewildered manager Rene Lachemann went during the 1982 season, some JELL-O was sure to followfrom his hotel bathroom sink, tub, and toilet (filled to the brim) to a postgame can of beer. Jay Buhner, one of the stars in the Seattle Mariners' 1995 Refuse to Lose" season, maintained the team's proud, prank-filled history well into the '90s with his blurping"vomiting on command.
It's a good thing Mariners players had a sense of humor, because for many years the play on the field wasn't going to keep one's spirits high, as the team lost a combined 202 games over their first two seasons. Twelve consecutive losing campaigns later, they finally posted a winning record in 1991. Four years later, they won their first division title and then their first playoff series.
Tales from the Seattle Mariners Dugout chronicles Seattle's rise from a hopeless and hapless franchise in the 1970s and '80s to a proud team in the 1990s that went on to capture three division championships and earn four playoff appearances. It's a must-read walk down memory lane for every fan of the team.
