2010 Mariners Opening Game:

Our Grandson Johnny is ready for the opening home game!  His Mom, Shanna, surprised him with all the goodies when he arrived home from school.


Some of the best Mariners ever:  Jay Buhner, Dan Wilson 
(Cary was Dan's chauffeur once when working for the State Patrol)
Randy Johnson, Edgar "Pappy" Martinez, and Ken Griffy, Jr.



Randy Johnson, former Mariner and now retired from baseball,
gets ready to throw the opening pitch.


 At 58 miles per hour and thrown straight, Randy said it 
was a better throw than President Obama's 
at last year's world series.

Johnson tosses 1st pitch for Mariners

SEATTLE -- Twelve years after he last threw a pitch for the Seattle Mariners, recently retired Randy Johnson says he thinks back fondly on being a big part of the franchise.

The 6-foot-10 Johnson was at Safeco Field on Monday to throw out the first pitch in the Mariners' home opener against the Oakland Athletics. The 46-year-old lefty announced his retirement in January after 22 major league seasons and five Cy Young Awards.

Johnson became just the 18th pitcher to win 300 games and finished his career with 303 victories.  About a third (130) of those victories came in Seattle between 1989-1998, when Johnson became the most feared left-handed pitcher in baseball and the nickname "The Big Unit" became his moniker. He remains the franchise leader in shutouts and strikeouts.
