Just because we are a baseball website, doesn’t mean we don’t get swept up in March Madness! To celebrate this great time of the year, we are dropping our own bracket!
Last year, in honor of the Mariners 40th Anniversary, we went ahead and decided who the “Best Mariners in History”. A purposely vague term, we let the fans decide what “best” meant. The final results? A Final 4 of Ken Griffey Jr. Dave Niehaus, Edgar Martinez and Felix Hernandez, where Griffey was crowned the winner.
This year, we ask you to name the best moment in Mariners history. Once again, “best” can be interpretative a few ways. Most significant? Most magical? Just the flat-out coolest? That is up to you, the voters!
So, throughout the NCAA tournament , we will leave it up to you. We have 32 moments to get through, and we will hold the vote on Twitter and Facebook. Just vote in each matchup, and we will do the rest.
Obviously, in a tournament style like this, there will be some disappointed bubble teams. In this case, moments. Chances are, one of your favorite moments didn’t make the cut. Sorry, but these things happen. Not every deserving moment will find its way into the bracket.
With all that said, lets break down our first 4 matchups, starting with the #1 overall seed.
