Howard Johnson 'stache

Howard Johnson replaces Hansen as the new hitting coach.

Johnson, nickname HoJo (fits perfectly with SoDo), was a switch hitting third baseman in the league from 1982-1995. He played for the Tigers, Mets, Rockies, and Cubs.

He most recently worked as the hitting coach for the Mets in 2010. But in 2011, at age 50, HoJo returned to professional baseball for a brief comeback to play two minor league games with his son Glen Johnson for the Rockland Boulders.

Johnson replaces Dave Hansen, who lasted only one year in the Mariners organization.

Dude sounds like a boss. Oh, and that ‘stache might be the greatest thing ever.
