All season long, we'll have different promotions representing the '95 M's. Needless to say, don't expect the fielders to hand these items out to you at the Safeco Field gates this spring and summer.
So, here's our first list of items we have to represent the 1995 Mariners.
---Sweetwater "Superstar" EP, in honor of Rich Amaral, sponsored by Sharp Records
You can't find any albums of the Seattle-based band anywhere. So, in a Sports and Bremertonians exclusive, the first 15 readers will receive a "Superstar" EP, complete with Rich Amaral's baseball card. "Superstar" was Amaral's at-bat music in 1995.
---Joey Cora Towel, in honor of Joey Cora, sponsored by Bed, Bath, and Beyond
We brought you the Kevin Jarvis "towel" in 2004, so it's only fitting that we bring you the Joey Cora Towel, where you can wipe your tears of sadness after seeing Willie Bloomquist going 0-for-4 in place of Richie Sexson on a June afternoon at the Safe. There is also an Alex Rodriguez Towel in the works as well, provided that the current Yankee chokes once again this October.
---Greg Pirkl Spitting Bucket, in honor of Greg Pirkl, sponsored by Kitsap Sports
Yes, we must honor the .235 batting average of Mr. Pirkl, who's best known for being one of the first players to congratulate Randy Johnson after the M's won the West.

This is just a preview of things to come.
It's only just begun...
