Find out all the latest updates with your team and monitor the Seattle Mariners progress with news apps on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The Seattle Mariners are an American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. Enfranchised in 1977, the Mariners are a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball’s American League. Safeco Field has been the Mariners’ home ballpark since July 1999. From their 1977 inception until June 1999, the club’s home park was the Kingdome. The “Mariners” name originates from the prominence of marine culture in the city of Seattle. They are nicknamed “the M’s”, a title featured in their primary logo from 1987–1992. The current team colors are Navy Blue, Northwest Green (also known as dark cyan), and Metallic Silver, after having been Royal Blue and Gold from 1977–1992. Their mascot is the Mariner Moose.

The Mariners won 116 games in 2001, which set the American League record for most wins in a single season and tied the 1906 Chicago Cubs for the Major League record for most wins in a single season. The Mariners were created because of a lawsuit. In 1970, in the aftermath of the Seattle Pilots’ purchase and relocation to Milwaukee (as the Milwaukee Brewers) by future Commissioner of Baseball Bud Selig, the City of Seattle, King County, and the state of Washington (represented by then-State Attorney General and later U.S. Senator Slade Gorton) sued the American League for breach of contract. Confident that Major League Baseball would return to Seattle within a few years, King County built the multi-purpose Kingdome, which would become home to the NFL’s expansion Seattle Seahawks in 1976. We thought it would be a good idea to provide fans with a choice of some Seattle Mariners apps accessible on the market.
