The Seattle Mariners is a major American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. The team became franchised in 1977. The Mariners are a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball’s American League. Since their inception in 1977 until June 1999, the club’s home park was the King-dome. The club’s history up to the year 1990s was quite unfortunate and poor, without a winning season, until 1991. Later in 1995, the team made a notable success when it won its first division championship and defeated the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series. Since their first division triumph, they have never won an AL Championship, and remain one of three franchises never to have played in a World Series. The Mariners have the record for most wins in a single season with 116, which they got in 2001.
The “Mariners” name finds its origin from the prominence of marine culture in the city of Seattle. Some of the most notable players in Mariners history include Ichiro Suzuki, Ken Griffey, Jr., Gaylord Perry, Randy Johnson, Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner, Jamie Moyer and Alex Rodriguez.
