As part of the first day of the Seattle Mariners Virtual Baseball Bash, Tayor Trammell took over Mariners Twitter yesterday and it was pretty entertaining. The 5th ranked prospect in the Mariners organization is known for his charismatic personality and fans had a chance to interact with him for a short while.
In case you missed it, or don’t have Twitter, here is a quick recap. Trammell answered about 20 questions on Twitter, and he was asked all kinds of questions. His first response was:
The outfielder was also asked other non-baseball related questions like what’s his favorite pre-game meal (answer = Chipotle), his favorite car (answer = lifted GMC AT4), and if pineapple belongs on pizza (answer = no). *Sorry Taylor, pineapple definitely belongs on pizza.

I also felt like the Q&A was fun because we were able to get to know Trammell from a baseball perspective. Generally speaking, Mariners fans haven’t really had a chance to get to know Taylor too well because we acquired him at the deadline, in a shortened season.
I learned that his two favorite players are Curtis Granderson and Dexter Fowler. His favorite Seattle Mariners player is Ken Griffey Jr., and is most looking forward to playing with Kyle Lewis since they’re both from Georgia.
One of my favorite responses though was this one:
“Those guys are going to make me better and in return I’m going to make them better.” That line just gives me chills. This tweet speaks volumes about who Trammell is. Taylor is just 23-years-old, and look how mature he sounds. If this doesn’t make you like him, I don’t know what will.
This is the exact type of mindset we need from the young players in our system. It is a competition, but it is a healthy competition to make every one of them better.
To close the Twitter takeover, Taylor posted a sweet video thanking fans.
“If you haven’t already done so, make somebody smile today.”
I don’t know about you, but I think Taylor Trammell will be a fan favorite very quickly. I cannot wait to see him play in Spring Training. Stay tuned for more exciting events during the Seattle Mariners Virtual Baseball Bash.
